About the Authors
  • Paul Churchland has been viewed as a provocative, controversial philosopher of mind and science for over three decades. This collection offers an introduction to his work as well as a critique of some of his most famous philosophical positions, and includes contributions by established as well as promising young philosophers. It is intended to complement the growing literature on Churchland, focusing on his contributions in isolation from those of his wife and philosophical partner, Patricia Churchland, and his contributions to philosophy as distinquished from those he made to cognitive science.

    • The first major assessment of the work of Paul Churchland as a philosopher
    • Both explicates Churchland's views in an accessible way and offers novel criticism of these views
    • Brings together both famous scholars with whom Churchland has engaged for decades with several younger philosophers
