Abstract
Philosophy of mind has been one of the most active and productive fields of philosophy during the past three decades. This has been due, in part, to the explosive growth of the cognitive sciences ― cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics, AI, and related fields. And there have been fruitful exchanges between philosophers and the scientists who are interested in the philosophical foundations of these burgeoning fields.
