"Color is an absolutely fascinating topic, one I happen to think is a beautiful and productive microcosm for cognitive science. These volumes will serve as useful resources for anyone interested in philosophy of color perception or color science." -- Stephen E. Palmer, Director, Institute of Cognitive Studies; and Professor of Psychology, University of California at Berkeley Color is an endlessly fascinating subject to philosophers, scientists, and laypersons, as well an an instructive microcosm of cognitive science. In these two anthologies, Alex Byrne and David Hilbert present a survey of the important recent philosophical and scientific writings on color. The introduction to volume 1 provides a philosophical background and links the philosophical issues to the empirical work covered in volume 2. The bibliography in volume 1 is an extensive resource for those doing philosophical work on color. The scientific selections in volume 2 present work in color science that is relevant to philosophical thinking about color; the material is comprehensive and sophisticated enough to be useful to the scientific reader. The introduction to volume 2 is an overview of color science; the volume also contains suggestions for further reading.
