There is nothing quite like this book available. Noë is a highly original thinker and very bold in the way he propounds his views, which range widely over topics in the theory of perception and cognition. He is selling a new way of thinking about perception and thought—and doing it very much in his own way. This book is extremely interesting and will be a source of ideas for readers with various interests.—Paul Snowdon, University College London

By making present the philosophy in art and the art in philosophy, Noë reveals the many ways the world shows up for us thanks to our consciousness being a kind of skillful understanding. Philosophers especially, but also artists, historians, and scientists, will find new insights on every page of this passionate and profound reflection on human experience.—Evan Thompson, University of Toronto
