The myth of Thomas, 3 Mar. 2013
I remember reading a review of this or perhaps "being no one" in New Scientist" in which the reviewer complained that he merely offered hard won scientific ideas and data in a heroic introspective authorial philosophical format:. I was impressed by the reviewers' scientific veracity and intolerance toward such introspective musing. Now I've read this great short book I disagree; I can that metzinger's project is to transpose cognitive science into philosophical discourse. Science won't dispel wooly philosophy by keeping its ideas to itself, metzinger's wants the ideas in cognitive science to begin to redefine thinking itself and the place to start, for him, being a philosopher by 'trade', is in philosophical discourse. I think it's a great place to start and I'll be reading "being no one" next...
