The essays in this volume are concerned with the theoretical developments in cognitive science for our everyday system of exploration of human actions in terms of beliefs, attitudes, memories, and so on. The volume provides an introduction to the lively contemporary debate about the status and theoretical viability of such forms of 'folk psychology' explanation, in the light of recent developments in neurobiology and cognitive science. It could be used as a textbook for advanced courses in the philosophy of the mind, psychology, and cognitive science.
"...a rich supplement to a traditional course in the philosophy of mind or a main text for a course that emphasizes just these issues. Among the book's strengths is that it collects excellent papers on folk psychology by key players in the field." Frederick Adams, Teaching Philosophy
