MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a very ambitious book. Beginning with the premise of scientific realism (explained clearly in the first six pages), Churchland aims at little less than a 'transvaluation of all values'. If some of Churchland's more glowing descriptions sound rather like The Tao of Science, that is probably all to the good; the consequences drawn are important, vivid, and much better calculated to give life to the philosophical issues than aridly abstract discussions ... I recommend the reading of this book to scientific realists and to diehard empiricists alike.' Bas C. Van Fraassen, The Canadian Journal of Philosophy
'I heartily recommend [Churchland's] book to all who are interested in the philosophy of mind.' J. J. C. Smart, The Australasian Journal of Philosophy
'Once in a great while a book appears that makes us want to stand up and cheer. Churchland has written just such a book ... The most delightful and intriguing sections of the book are those in which Churchland shows how we might expand our perceptual and introspective consciousness, and come to see the physical world and ourselves through the categories provided by science.' Stephen P. Stitch, Ethics
