Philosophy of Psychology: A Contemporary Introduction (Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy)


José Luis Bermúdez introduces the philosophy of psychology as an interdisciplinary exploration of the character and mechanisms of cognition. Philosophy of Psychology charts out 4 influential 'pictures of the brain' and makes use of them to discover principal themes within the philosophical foundations of psychology, together with the relation among diverse degrees of learning the mind/brain; the character and scope of mental rationalization; the structure of cognition; and the relation among concept and language.

Chapters conceal all of the middle strategies, including:

  • models of mental explanation
  • the nature of common sense psychology
  • arguments for the autonomy of psychology
  • functionalist ways to cognition
  • computational types of the mind
  • neural community modeling
  • rationality and psychological causation
  • perception, motion and cognition
  • the language of concept and the structure of cognition.

Philosophy of Psychology: a modern Introduction is a really transparent and well-structured textbook from one of many leaders within the field.
