Julia Tanney provides an impressive critical analysis of the metaphysical ideas and arguments that shape contemporary philosophy of mind. Rules, Reason, and Self-Knowledge is essential reading for anyone with serious interests in the philosophy of mind, in philosophy of language, and in questions about the place of normativity in nature.—Cora Diamond, University of Virginia

Julia Tanney’s Rules, Reason, and Self-Knowledge is a radical challenge to the cognitivist paradigm in contemporary analytic philosophy of mind posed from within the paradigm itself. Tanney’s grasp of theory is that of an insider, and the depth and comprehensiveness of her arguments will make the book virtually impossible to ignore.—Stephen C. White, Tufts University
