Product Details

Promotional Information

Cummins addresses problems facing naturalistic theories of representation in cognitive systems. After providing a sophisticated survey of the strengths and defects of traditional and recent proposals, he develops his own 'interpretational' approach in some detail. Given the unusual clarity and concision with which he writes, there is no question that the book will be tremendously useful to any student of cognitive science or philosophy of language and mind. -- Georges Rey, University of Maryland
