  • Contains insights for a diverse range of fields, including linguistics, cognitive science, anthropology, economics, and psychology, as well as almost every area of professional philosophy today
  • Edited by two rising scholars who take a broad and inclusive approach to the field
  • Offers a complete introduction for non-specialists and students to the central approaches, findings, challenges, and controversies in experimental philosophy
