Jose Luis Bermudez introduces the philosophy of psychology as an interdisciplinary exploration of the nature and mechanisms of cognition. Philosophy of Psychology charts out four influential 'pictures of the mind' and uses them to explore central topics in the philosophical foundations of psychology, including the relation between different levels of studying the mind/brain; the nature and scope of psychological explanation; the architecture of cognition; and the relation between thought and language.

Chapters cover all the core concepts, including:

models of psychological explanationthe nature of commonsense psychologyarguments for the autonomy of psychologyfunctionalist approaches to cognitioncomputational models of the mindneural network modelingrationality and mental causationperception, action and cognitionthe language of thought and the architecture of cognition.

Philosophy of Psychology: A Contemporary Introduction is a very clear and well-structured textbook from one of the leaders in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'As an advanced introductory text, this book has much to recommend it to undergraduate and graduate philosophy students: as being clearly and engagingly written and...strking an excellent balance between exegesis and criticism...Essential reading for anyone with at least a little background in philosophy of psychology and wishes to learn more.' - Richard de Blacquiere-Clarkson, Metapsychology On Line

'a great feat...chock full of examples from contemporary research, and beginners are brought to advanced discussion of contemporary thinking about cognition. Beginning philosophers, and serious researchers in philosophy and allied fields will profit from it."

Krista Lawlor, Philosophical Books

'An outstanding introductory text in philosophy of psychology that lends itself readily to use in a variety of courses. It will, in addition, constitute an independent, substantive contribution to philosophy of psychology and philosophy of mind.' - David Rosenthal, City University of New York, USA

'Philosophers of psychology and philosophically minded psychologists are in need of just this kind of introductory book. I would recommend this material both for pedagogy and as a place for scholars to turn to for a refresher.' - Joe Cruz, Williams College, USA
