Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title, 2012

'In the second edition of The Phenomenological Mind, Gallagher and Zahavi offer a robust, exemplary account of how the phenomenological tradition (as developed by Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, and others) stands as an important resource for research in contemporary philosophy of mind and cognitive science. ...Skillfully integrating textual analysis, empirical data, and phenomenological narrative, the authors offer compelling arguments that rupture disciplinary boundaries while inviting future dialogue... Summing Up: Highly recommended.' - CHOICE

Praise for the first edition:

'Though Gallagher and Zahavi call their book an introduction, it is far more than an introduction. It is the most comprehensive work on what phenomenology has to say about cognition and consciousness and how it relates to the scientific study of cognition to date.' – Abstracta

'…upper level philosophy students, postgraduates, and anyone interested in a non-computational, non-reductive, scientifically informed view of the mind will find it, I am sure, extremely helpful and illuminating. … both phenomenologists and cognitive scientists can profit from this excellent and timely treatment.' - Mind

'Offering a fresh new approach, this clear and accessible book shows the relevance of phenomenology to contemporary investigations of the mind and brain. It will be useful for students and scholars alike in the cognitive sciences who wish to gain a better understanding of Phenomenology and its relevance to their research.' – Evan Thompson, University of Toronto, Canada

'This excellent and much-needed book offers the first comprehensive introduction to phenomenological philosophy of mind. Written by two internationally renowned contributors to this exciting and fast-growing interdisciplinary field, it will be an indispensable resource for students and researchers alike.' – Matthew Ratcliffe, Durham University, UK

'Co-authored by two of the most prominent and respected contributors to the field, this is an outstanding book, and a very welcome and much-needed addition to the literature.' – Daniel Hutto, University of Hertfordshire, UK

'This is an absolutely indispensable book for anyone interested in the contemporary study of the mind. It provides clear summaries of the leading theoretical positions and the required orientation for understanding current debates. It is a fresh, lively and highly accessible text that will engage students and bring them up to speed very quickly. In short, a superb and much needed book.' - Barry C. Smith, Institute of Philosophy, University of London, UK
