A collection of essays concerning the mind that explores the prospects for, and limits of, appealing to facts about evolutionary history and current environment-organism interaction in explaining the nature and workings of the mental. Includes papers in ethology, psychology, neuroscience. Each paper contributes to the discussion of what discoveries in this field can tell us about particular issues in the philosophy of mind. Some of the papers in this issue have had a high profile: Mel Goodale was recently on the CBC talking about how each of us has two types of vision (it was a fascinating piece that is not actually written by a philosopher!).
