Reviews
"[A] schooling for traditional philosophers on scientific data relevant for the topics they have previously deemed purely theoretical...one that philosophers of morality and mind should (continue to) take seriously....[P]itched at the right level for philosophers to read and appreciate--and I highly recommend that philosophers of mind (and cognate areas) do so. For knowing how the brain works and how it shapes our various mental experiences is fundamental to getting philosophizing about ourselves right."
--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"It is rare to find such direct and sustained correspondence; this is truly a monumental interdisciplinary academic achievement."
