The philosophy of cognitive science is concerned with fundamental philosophical and theoretical questions connected to the sciences of the mind. How does the brain give rise to conscious experience? Does speaking a language change how we think? Is a genuinely intelligent computer possible?What features of the mind are innate? Advances in cognitive science have given philosophers important tools for addressing these sorts of questions; and cognitive scientists have, in turn, found themselves drawing upon insights from philosophy-insights that have often taken their research in noveldirections. The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Cognitive Science brings together twenty-one newly commissioned chapters by leading researchers in this rich and fast-growing area of philosophy. It is an indispensible resource for anyone who seeks to understand the implications of cognitive science forphilosophy, and the role of philosophy within cognitive science.
Eric Margolis is Professor of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Richard Samuels is Professor of Philosophy at Ohio State University. Stephen Stich is Board of Governors Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University.
