This is an extremely useful book, one that will have wide appeal to an audience of cognitive scientists, neuroscientists, psychologists, philosophers, and possibly the growing number of humanities scholars interested in the interface of cognitive science and the arts. I can’t think of any book that collects so many approaches to mental representation between one set of covers and that gathers together the latest work and thoughts of so many stellar researchers in cognitive science. The introductory chapter, moreover serves as an excellent survey and overview.—Steven Pinker, Professor in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, author of How the Mind Works
