William Lyons is Professor of Philosophy and Chairman of the Department at Trinity College, Dublin.Review:
Lyons takes on the new task of tracing the concept of introspection from its philosophical origins to its usa by the introspectionists at the beginnings of psychology and its role in present-day inquiry.... After reviewing the illusive nature of introspection, [he] proposes that introspection conceptualized in any form of monitoring, inspecting, scanning, or immediate retrieval of data with respect to cognitive processes, is a myth of our culture, an invention of our folk psychology... [his] thesis is to interpret introspection as the replay of perception.(American Journal of Psychology)
