Summary
"In this collection of essays, Paul Churchland explores the unfolding impact of the several empirical sciences of the mind, especially cognitive neurobiology and computational neuroscience, on a variety of traditional issues central to the discipline of philosophy. Representing Churchland's most recent investigations, they continue his research program, launched more than thirty years ago, which has evolved into the field of neurophilosophy."--BOOK JACKET
