Lot 2 by Jerry A. Fodor Lot 2, Paperback (July 2010)

Jerry Fodor presents a new development of his famous Language of Thought hypothesis, the idea that thinking is couched in a symbolic system realized in the brain; since the 1970s this has been at the centre of debate about how the mind works. No one who studies the mind can ignore Fodor's views, expressed in his coruscating and provocative style.

Hume Variations by Jerry A. Fodor Hume Variations, Paperback (November 2005)
