Robert Cummins is Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Davis. He is the author of "The Nature of Psychological Explanation" (1983), "Meaning and Mental Representation" (1987), and "Representations, Targets and Attitudes" (1996), as well as many articles and several edited volumes. He specializes in the foundations of cognitive science and the nature of mental representation.Denise D. Cummins is Associate Research Professor of Social Sciences at the University of California, Davis. She is the author of "The Other Side of Psychology" (1995), "The Evolution of Mind" (ed. with Colin Allen), and "Human Reasoning: an Evolutionary Perspective" as well as numerous articles and reviews. She specializes in higher cognition from an evolutionary perspective.


"This anthology features papers that are historically important to cognitive science, giving about equal billing to symbolic, connectionist, and neuroscience viewpoints. Although the papers convey some key findings, their strong point is clarifying assumptions that underlie these three perspectives. Students will find this a valuable sourcebook for the major research traditions." Lance Rips, Northwestern University
