About the Authors
  • This collection of essays by eminent philosopher Fred Dretske brings together work on the theory of knowledge and philosophy of mind spanning thirty years. The two areas combine to lay the groundwork for a naturalistic philosophy of mind. The essays focus on perception, knowledge, and consciousness. Together, they show the interconnectedness of Dretske's work in epistemology and his more contemporary ideas on philosophy of mind, shedding light on the links that can be made between the two. This collection will be a valuable resource for a wide range of philosophers and their students, and will also be of interest to cognitive scientists, psychologists, and philosophers of biology.

    • Dretske is a very well-known, highly respected philosopher
    • Many of the essays included in this volume are thought to be classics
    • Essays show how Dretske's thought developed over thirty years
    • Links early work in epistemology with more contemporary work in philosophy of mind
