From the Publisher"A must-read for proponents and opponents of the language of thought alike."John Heil , Professor of Philosophy, Monash University, and Professor ofPhilosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology, Washington University in St Louis
"Susan Schneider has written a beautifully clear and highly original reappraisal of the language of thought hypothesis, reworking it from its very roots and bringing it into harmony with the latest developments in cognitive and computational neuroscience. Her fine book makes essential reading for philosophers of mind and cognitive scientists alike." E. J. Lowe, Durham University
"Susan Schneider's The Language of Thought: A New PhilosophicalDirection does precisely what its title claims: it provides a new orientation for the language of thought and the related computational theory of mind. Schneider bravely stakes out new theoretical commitments for LOT, such as a pragmatist theory of concepts and a theory of symbols.
Whether you agree or disagree with the LOT approach — I myself am a critic — Schneider's book is an absolutely necessary read for anyone interested in philosophy of mind and the foundations of cognitive science." Mark Bickhard , Henry R. Luce Professor in Cognitive Robotics and the Philosophy of Knowledge, Lehigh University
