MEDIA REVIEWS

"Questions about the character and role of belief - what are beliefs, and what role do they play in our cognitive and behavioral economies? - are central issues not only for epistemology, but also for philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, philosophy of action, and philosophy of religion, among other fields. New Essays on Belief: Constitution, Content and Structure brings together a set of specially-commissioned essays on this important and timely topic. The authors in this excellent volume address these concerns from a variety of perspectives, drawing on important classical and contemporary work on the semantics of propositional attitudes, the nature of delusions, the role of character traits, the moral status of doxastic attitudes, and a range of other topics. By bringing together both established authors and a new generation of young thinkers, New Essays on Belief offers readers the chance to gain uniquely nuanced picture of state-of-the-art thinking in this exciting area of philosophical research." - Tamar Szabo Gendler, Vincent J. Scully Professor of Philosophy Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science Chair, Yale University, USA
