The Phenomenological Mind, 2nd Edition:
"…Accessible to nonspecialists but does not shy away from technical matters of scholarly concern. Skillfully integrating textual analysis, empirical data, and phenomenological narrative, the authors offer compelling arguments that rupture disciplinary boundaries while inviting future dialog. Borrowing from Robert Nozick's comment about John Rawls, in light of Gallagher and Zahavi's excellent book, philosophers of mind and cognitive scientists ought to seriously engage phenomenology or explain why not. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty.' – Choice
A New Environmental Ethics: The Next Millennium for Life on Earth:

Summing Up: Highly recommended." – Choice
