José Luis Bermúdez introduces the philosophy of psychology as an interdisciplinary exploration of the nature and mechanisms of cognition. Philosophy of Psychology charts out four influential ‘pictures of the mind’ and uses them to explore central topics in the philosophical foundations of psychology, including the relation between different levels of studying the mind/brain; the nature and scope of psychological explanation; the architecture of cognition; and the relation between thought and language.
Chapters cover all the core concepts, including:
models of psychological explanation
the nature of commonsense psychology
arguments for the autonomy of psychology
functionalist approaches to cognition
computational models of the mind
neural network modeling
rationality and mental causation
perception, action and cognition
the language of thought and the architecture of cognition.
