Leading researchers across a range of disciplines provide a state-of-the-art view of imitation, integrating the latest findings and theories with reviews of seminal work, and revealing why imitation is a topic of such intense current scientific interest.

About the Author:

Susan Hurley is Professor at the University of Warwick, and Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford.

Review:

Here we encounter the very best of thinking, evidence, and debate on imitation (and beyond) from the very best of philosophers, scientists, and proponents of contrasting perspectives. It's brilliant and it's fun.

(R. Peter Hobson, avistock Professor of Developmental Psychopathology, University of London, and author of The Cradle of Thought)

Philosophers have argued for centuries about the existence of free will. In this exciting book Daniel Wegner presents the facts about our experience of controlling our own actions. He persuasively argues that our experience of will is an illusion, but that this illusion is crucial for our concepts of morality and personal responsibility. This book should be read by anyone with an interest in how the mind works.

(Chris Frith, Institute of Neurology, University College London)
