This is a truly groundbreaking work that examines today's notions of folk psychology. Bringing together disciplines as various as cognitive science and anthropology, the authors analyze the consensual views of the subject. The contributors all maintain that current understandings of folk psychology and of the mechanisms that underlie it need to be revised, supplemented or dismissed altogether. That's why this book is essential reading for those in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Traditionally folk psychology is understood as our ability to predict and explain the behavior of other people by attributing intentional states (beliefs, desires, etc.) to them. Debates about the status of folk psychology have been going on for decades. ... Folk Psychology Re-Assessed contributes some interesting angles to the mainstream folk-psychology debate. ... the volume will appeal to work in philosophy of mind, neuroscience and experimental psychology ... . I think the volume is probably most useful ... in advanced undergraduate or graduate courses." (Christina Behme, Metapsychology Online Reviews, Vol. 12 (11), 2008)
