This collection of new and previously published essays reflects the major research and thought of one of today's preeminent philosophers of mind. The first seven essays are philosophical pieces that focus on mental representation and the foundations of intentionality; they are followed by four psychological essays on cognitive architecture. In his eloquent introduction, Fodor shows how the two areas are thematically united and epistemologically related, highlighting his interest in finding alternatives to holistic accounts of cognitive content.

Jerry Fodor is Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University. His many books include In Critical Condition (MIT Press, 1998) and The Elm and the Expert (MIT Press, 1994).

Editorial Reviews

Among the books one should read, there are those one must read. This is another must from Jerry Fodor. A brilliant set of essays chronicling (among other things) Fodor's development over the past decade of a theory of mental content. Provocative, witty, challenging and, yes, sometimes exasperating, Fodor simply cannot be ignored. He is too good.
