Attention Is Cognitive Unison

An Essay in Philosophical Psychology

Christopher Mole

Philosophy of Mind

  • The book proposes a new and revisionary theory of attention.
  • The topic of attention has long been neglected by philosophers - this is the first philosophical theory of attention for many years, and the first to draw extensively on research from the cognitive sciences.
  • The book brings the intellectual resources of analytic metaphysics to bear on what are usually regarded as purely scientific questions.
