Kant and the mind by Andrew Brook( Book )
25 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 549 libraries worldwide
Kant made a number of highly original discoveries about the mind - about its ability to synthesize a single, coherent representation of self and world, about the unity it must have to do so, and about the mind's awareness of itself and the semantic apparatus it uses to achieve this awareness. The past fifty years have seen intense activity in research on human cognition. Even so, not only have Kant's discoveries not been superseded, some of them have not even been assimilated into current thinking
Daniel Dennett ( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 437 libraries worldwide
Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Contemporary Philosophy in Focus will offer a series of introductory volumes to many of the dominant philosophical thinkers of the current age. Each volume will consist of newly commissioned essays that will cover all the major contributions of a preeminent philosopher in a systematic and accessible manner. Author of such groundbreaking and influential books as Consciousness Explained and Darwin's Dangerous Idea, Daniel C. Dennett has reached a huge general and professional audience that extends way beyond the confines of academic philosophy. He has made significant contributions to the study of consciousness, the development of the child's mind, cognitive ethnology, explanation in the social sciences, artificial intelligence, and evolutionary theory. This volume is the only truly introductory collection that traces these connections, explores the implications of Dennett's work, and furnishes the non-specialist with a fully-rounded account of why Dennett is such an important voice on the philosophical scene
Dennett's philosophy : a comprehensive assessment by Andrew Brook( Book )
14 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 libraries worldwide
Knowledge and mind : a philosophical introduction by Andrew Brook( Book )
16 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 380 libraries worldwide
This is the only contemporary text to cover both epistemology and philosophy of mind at an introductory level. It also serves as a general introduction to philosophy: it discusses the nature and methods of philosophy as well as basic logical tools of the trade. The book is divided into three parts. The first focuses on knowledge, in particular, skepticism and knowledge of the external world, and knowledge of language. The second focuses on mind, including the metaphysics of mind and freedom of will. The third brings together knowledge and mind, discussing knowledge of mind (other minds and our own) and naturalism and how epistemology and philosophy of mind come together in contemporary cognitive science. Throughout, the authors take into account the needs of the beginning philosophy student. They have made very effort to ensure accessibility while preserving accuracy
The prehistory of cognitive science ( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 326 libraries worldwide
Presents an annotated bibliography of models of human cognition from the 17th through the 19th centuries, compiled by Carl Stahmer. Lists the included and soon-to-be included authors. Contains a subject index, a chronology, and references
Cognition and the brain : the philosophy and neuroscience movement ( Book )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 319 libraries worldwide
"This volume provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the philosophy and neuroscience movement, which applies the methods of neuroscience to traditional philosophical problems and uses philosophical methods to illuminate issues in neuroscience. At the heart of the movement is the conviction that basic questions about human cognition, many of which have been studied for millennia, can be answered only by a philosophically sophisticated grasp of neuroscience's insights into the processing of information by the human brain. Essays in this volume are clustered around five major themes: data and theory in neuroscience; neural representation and computation; visuomotor transformations; color vision; and consciousness."--Jacket
Self-reference and self-awareness ( Book )
14 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 179 libraries worldwide
Rich in precursors (Kant and Frege) and stimulated by Castañeda's study in the logic of self-consciousness and Shoemaker's seminal paper 'Self-reference and self-awareness', the work of the past thirty-five years on self-reference and self-awareness has generated a wealth of deep, sophisticated philosophy. This volume explores the historical anticipations in Kant and Frege, brings four classic contributions together in one place, and offers five new studies. (Series A)
