  1. Now Available: Current Controversies in Experimental Philosophy

    "This book provides an excellent account of the current state of experimental philosophy, written by some of the most prominent defenders and critics of various approaches. It provides a useful introduction as well as a significant contribution. Highly recommended!" -Gilbert Harman, Princeton University

    Experimental philosophy is one of the most active and exciting areas in philosophy today. In Current Controversies in Experimental Philosophy, Elizabeth O’Neill and Edouard Machery have brought together twelve leading philosophers to debate four topics central to recent research in experimental philosophy. The result is an important and enticing contribution to contemporary philosophy which thoroughly reframes traditional philosophical questions in light of experimental philosophers’ use of empirical research methods, and brings to light the lively debates within experimental philosophers’ intellectual community.

This second edition includes an expanded discussion of Aristotle's method, and new sections on key issues in perception, thought, akrasia, and mimesis.
