From the Back Cover
This volume is a collection of both new and previously published essays focusing on one of the most exciting and actively discussed topics in contemporary philosophy: naturalistic theories of mental content. The volume brings together important papers written by some of the most distinguished theorists working in the field today. Authors contributing to the volume include Jerry Fodor, Ruth Millikan, Fred Dretske, Ned Block, Robert Cummins, and Daniel Dennett.
One special feature of the volume is its format. Following the editors' introduction and several essays surveying the field are important articles offering theories of mental content. Following each of these articles is a critical discussion of the theory presented. Critical commentators for the volume include Terrance Hogan, Barry Loewer and Lynne Rudder Baker.
The volume is intended for use in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in the philosophy of psychology. It will also be of use to professional philosophers and cognitive scientists.
