A lively and incisive collection of papers. Dennett offers us a comprehensive theory of mind, set forth in seventeen essays, united by an extensive introduction. An important book for cognitive psychologists, neurophysiologists, computer scientists, those interested in linguistics and in artificial intelligence, and epistemological philosophers. "The problems that Daniel Dennett addresses in his essays are crucial ones for philosophy and contemporary science. With a sure touch and a great deal of insight, he has subjected to analysis questions that lie at, or perhaps just beyond, the frontiers of the scientific study of mind and brain..." Noam Chomsky "The essays in this volume comprise what is perhaps the most important single, sustained contribution by a philosopher to the current inter-disciplinary conversation about the nature and methodology of the 'cognitive science' ... Informed discussion of explanation in linguistics, cognitive psychology and AI starts here." Jerry Fodor -- The above is excerpted from the dust jacket of another edition of the book.
