History of cognitive neuroscience by M. R Bennett( Book )

This book discusses the landmark experiments which have significantly influenced the field. The authors return to the relationship between brain function and our psychological attributes.

By studying the major experiments conducted by neuroscientists over the last century and a half and evaluating the validity of the conclusions that were drawn from them, this well-informed critique aims to challenge, provoke and illuminate neuroscientists, psychologists, philosophers and general readers alike

Wittgenstein : comparisons and context by P. M. S Hacker( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a collection of P.M.S. Hacker's papers on Wittgenstein and Wittgensteinian themes written over the last decade. It presents Hacker's own (Wittgensteinian) conception of philosophy, and defends it against criticisms. Two essays compare Wittgenstein with Kant on transcendental arguments, and offer a Wittgensteinian critique of Kant's transcendental deduction. Two further essays trace the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy of psychology, and examine his anthropological and ethnological approach to philosophical problems. This leads naturally to a synoptic comparison of Wittgenstein's later philosophy of language with formal, truth-conditional conceptions of language. A further two clarificatory essays follow these comparative ones: the first concerns Wittgenstein's conception of grammar, and his exclusion of theses, doctrines, dogmas, and opinions in philosophy; the second concerns his treatment of intentionality
