Long before the emergence of this field, many of the same questions being posed within this field were asked by philosophers. So how much of this earlier work informs current theories of cognition? In many cases--too little. Yet how can we ignore thousands of years of philosophical thinking on the human mind?

There are some questions about the human brain that are surely impossible to answer without considering what it feels like to see, what it feels like to think.Ways of Seeing is a unique collaboration between an eminent philosopher and a world famous neuroscientist. It focuses on one of the most basic human functions--vision.

What does it mean to see? It brings together electrophysiological studies, neuropsychology, psychophysics, cognitive psychology, and philosophy of mind.The first truly interdisciplinary book devoted to the topic of vision, this is a book will make a valuable contribution to the field of cognitive science.
