She was a founding member of the European Society for Philosophy and Psychology, and of the European Society for Analytic Philosophy.

This interesting book constitutes a remarkable contribution to our understanding of a rather neglected subject in philosophy of mind ... Philosophers will find it thought provoking, while psychologists may find some conceptual constructions that will be of use in helping them to better understand and explain their observations. * Santiago Arango-Munoz, Mind & Machines *
Readers with a psychology background will benefit from the conceptual clarity with which the book views experimental results, and philosophers will find in it an accessible introduction to a field of psychological research with important philosophical dimensions and implications. * Analysis *
