Overview

"Sad to say, much of what philosophers have to say about the mind these days is wisely ignored by serious researchers, but there is a fast growing cadre of philosophers of cognitive science or neurophilosophers who are well poised to contribute to the solution or resolution of these problems, and Nikola Grahek was one of these, leading the way for others before his untimely death at the end of September 2003. He had both the conceptual acuity of a well-trained philosopher and an intimate, broad-based knowledge of the empirical science relating to his chosen topic: pain. Putting the two together, and proceeding in a constructive, optimistic spirit, he came up with some startling and attention-shifting proposals about how to make sense of pain, revisionary proposals that should clarify the thinking of scientist and layperson alike."
