Review of the hardback: 'A must read for those interested in the role of representation in cognitive science, and a nice review of the literature along the way that will be appreciated by both students and scholars.' Robert Cummins, University of Illinois
'... a superb insightful analysis of the notion of mental representation in cognitive science. The book presents an original argument for a bold conclusion: partial eliminativism about mental representation in scientific psychology ... I would warmly recommend Ramsey's book to anyone working on representation.' Mark Sprevak, The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science
'[This] book makes a well-informed, carefully argued and convincing case for its core argument. Everyone who is seriously interested in the philosophy of cognitive science and the status of psychological theorizing should read it.' Daniel D. Hutto, Philosophical Psychology
