From the Publisher
"Every student of cognition will somewhere in [Naturalizing Phenomenology] find something new and interesting."—APA Review of Books
Booknews
Emanating from a Paris-based Phenomenology and Cognition Research Group created in 1993, these 21 essays collectively reflect on the interface between Husserlian phenomenology and an integrated science of cognition that fills the explanatory gap between the phenomenological mind and the brain in a manner fitting "the things themselves." Essays address intentionality, movement, and temporality; mathematics in phenomenology; the nature and limits of naturalization; skeptical attitudes; and historical perspectives. Includes extensive reference matter. The lead editor is affiliated with the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales. The other contributors are French, North and Latin American, and Australian scholars; several are at the Paris Husserl Archives. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
