In this introduction to the philosophical problems underlying the modern study of mind and behavior, Ned Block has collected the most important papers by the major figures in the field. He provides the only central reference work now available for scholars and students in this growing area of inquiry.

Volume I covers general approaches to the study of the mind: behaviorism, reductionism, and functionalism. Volume II addresses the central topics in modern cognitive science: mental representation, imagery, grammar and innate ideas.
