This book draws connections between recent advances in analytic philosophy of mind and insights from the rich phenomenological tradition concerning the nature of thinking. By combining both analytic and continental approaches, the volume arrives at a more comprehensive understanding of the mental process of "thinking" and the experience and manipulation of objects of thought. Contributors scrutinize aspects of thinking that have a common grounding in both the phenomenological and analytic tradition: perception, language, logic, embodiment and situatedness due to individual history or current experience. This collection serves to broaden and enrich the current debate over "cognitive phenomenology," and lays the foundations for further dialogue between analytic and continental approaches to the phenomenal character of thinking.

"It is impossible to do justice to the complexities of these papers. Suffice it to say that they are invariably interesting and thought-provoking. Taken together, they present a set of ideas that will advance the understanding of cognitive phenomenology from a phenomenological perspective, and they have implications for the debate as conducted in analytic philosophy of mind." - Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
