A fascinating collection....all the essays convey some new and interesting ideas....Radman's collection, by highlighting a range of philosophical, cognitive, neurophysiological, evolutionary, cultural, and aesthetic aspects of the hand, will surely benefit and resonate with a large and diverse readership.-Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
An impressive array of philosophers, psychologists, and cognitive scientists...Radman has done us all a service in editing this volume-the first of its kind to my knowledge.-Avant
Radman's collection is a comprehensive, incisive and rewarding read, which brings together a host of diverse research about the hand. While there may be important conceptual divisions among the essays in this collection, these essays nonetheless demonstrate that what we do with our hands shapes in powerful and sometimes unexpected ways our thoughts and experiences. Hands matter and much more than one might think.-Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences
