The Mind As a Scientific Object

Between Brain and Culture

Edited by Christina E. Erneling and David M. Johnson

What holds together the various fields, which--considered together--are supposed to constitute the general intellectual discipline that people now call cognitive science? Some theorists identify the common subject matter as the mind, but scientists have not been able to agree on any single, satisfactory answer to the question of what the mind is. This book argues that all cognitive sciences are not equal, and that rather only neurophysiology and cultural psychology are suited to account for the mind's ontology.
