Reviews
"There is a lot to like in Thagard's book....an enjoyable read...continually thought provoking....Intelligence is likely a multi-faceted and multi-dimensional concept, and Thagard does illuminate many of its features for humans, animals, and machines."
--Essays in Philosophy

"...written for an educated general audience...Thagard does an admirable job of providing clear yet succinct explanations....the book should be of particular interest to instructors teaching classes in philosophy of mind or philosophy of technology."
