Short Desription

"This is an exceptionally good textbook. It covers an unusually wide range of issues in an up-to-date and balanced fashion, and is clearly written. It would be invaluable for all students, both undergraduates and postgraduates, who take a genuine interest in the nature of psychology and the theoretical issues it faces." - Graham Richards, Director, British Psychological Society History of Psychology Centre

Psychology is understood by many as the 'science of the mind', but what is 'mind' and what have modern psychology and philosophy to say about its nature? What is 'science' and what is a scientific approach to mind?

This thoroughly revised edition of the classic textbook explores a wide range of problems in psychology, philosophy, cognitive and brains sciences, identifying the major topics, debates, and controversies and presenting them in a balanced and accessible manner for students.

New to the Second Edition:

  • A┬ánew ten chapter structure making it ideal for a lecture course
  • Contains new content on advances in cognitive psychology and neuroscience, including neural networks, dynamics systems and situated cognition
  • Final chapter focuses on "hot issues" at the interface of psychology and philosophy - making attempts to look forward
  • Pedagogical features including chapter summaries and further readings

Brought fully up-to-date with advances in computational, cognitive and neuroscience work on the one hand, and links with philosophy on the other, this book is essential reading for all students needing an understanding of these issues.
