An ambitious and groundbreaking book written by Joelle Proust, an
expert from the French CNRS -the National Center for Scientific
Research in Paris. * Fernando Salvetti, Philosophical Practice
This interesting book constitutes a remarkable contribution to our understanding of a rather neglected subject in philosophy of mind ... Philosophers will find it thought provoking, while psychologists may find some conceptual constructions that will be of use in helping them to better understand and explain their observations. * Santiago Arango-Munoz, Mind & Machines *
