Spatial Representation by Naomi Eilan

Book Description

Spatial Representation presents original, specially written essays by leading psychologists and philosophers on a fascinating set of topics at the intersection of these two disciplines. They address such questions as these: Do the extraordinary navigational abilities of birds mean that these birds have the same kind of grip on the idea of a spatial world as we do? Is there a difference between the way sighted and blind subjects represent the world 'out there'? Does the study of brain-injured subjects, such as 'blind seers', tell us anything about the working of normal spatial consciousness? The essays are arranged into five sections, each of which reflects a central area of research into spatial cognition, and opens with a short introduction by the editors, designed to facilitate cross-disciplinary reading. The volume as a whole offers a rich and compelling expression of the view that to advance our understanding of the way we represent the external world it is necessary to draw on both philosophical and psychological approaches.

Books By Author Naomi Eilan

Second Person by Naomi Eilan Second Person, Hardback (August 2015)

This book was originally published as a special issue of Philosophical Explorations.

Perception, Causation, and Objectivity by Naomi Eilan Perception, Causation, and Objectivity, Hardback (July 2011)

Leading philosophers and psychologists offer a rigorous assessment of the commonsense view that perceptual experience is an immediate awareness of mind-independent objects. They examine the nature of perception, its role in the acquisition of knowledge, the role of causation in perception, and how perceptual understanding develops in humans.

Joint Attention - Communication and Other Minds by Naomi Eilan Joint Attention - Communication and Other Minds, Hardback (March 2005)

Brings together psychological and philosophical perspectives on the nature and significance of joint attention. This volume explores the idea that joint attention has a key foundational role to play in the emergence of communicative abilities, psychological understanding, and, possibly, in the very capacity for objective thought.

Agency and Self-Awareness by Naomi Eilan Agency and Self-Awareness, Hardback (July 2003)

There has been much psychological and neurological work purporting to show that consciousness and self-awareness play no role in causing actions. The essays in this volume subject the assumptions that motivate such claims to sustained interdisciplinary scrutiny.
