"The papers in this collection, the fourteenth in the Philosophers and their Critics series edited by Ernest Lepore, bear witness to the fecundity of Stich's contributions to the discipline, while his replies to the individual papers bear witness to his dialectical skills." (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, September 2009) "The tone of the book is almost universally one of mutual respect and generosity in interpretation. Overall it is an excellent collection." (Metapsychology, September 2009)

The collaboration of cognitive science and philosophy has recently blossomed into one of the fastest growing domains of philosophical inquiry and analysis. Many contemporary philosophers would place Stephen Stich at its vanguard. Possessing a rare ability to combine compellingly lucid arguments with deep philosophical insights, Stich has emerged over the past four decades to become one of cognitive science's most influential and innovative philosophers. Groundbreaking in its own right, Stich and His Critics provides a thorough assessment and critique of the key philosophical themes in the distinguished career of Stephen Stich. Through a challenging collection of original new essays from leading philosophical scholars, the text explores some of philosophy's most hotly-debated contemporary topics, including mental representation, theory of mind, nativism, moral philosophy, and naturalized epistemology. Stich and His Critics peels back the layers of Stephen Stich's innovative body of work to reveal startling new insights into the award-winning philosopher's pioneering and sometimes controversial theories regarding the complexities of the human mind.
No philosopher has done more for Cognitive Science, in more areas, than Stephen Stich. This far-reaching collection makes fitting tribute to contemporary philosophy’s greatest interdisciplinarian, by presenting estimable contributions to the science and philosophy of mind, where Stich remains both intellectual benchmark and provocateur-in-chief. –John M. Doris, Washington University in St. Louis "Stephen Stich is one of the most interesting contemporary empirically oriented philosophers. His books and articles are required reading for all serious students of the subject. This present volume, Stich and His Critics, contains interesting discussions of his work by other outstanding philosophers, along with Stich's elegant responses. There is something here for everyone. This book will be useful both to new students and to those who think they are already quite familiar with the issues." –Gilbert Harman, Princeton University
