Update to “Philosophy of Neuroscience” Entry in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

The Fall 2019 revision/update of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy’s “Philosophy of Neuroscience” entry includes revisions to previously published sections, and an entirely new section on work in the field during the second decade of the 21st century. Detailed discussion of recent work on mechanism reflects the dominance that this approach has achieved recently, but also some new criticisms. New topics include neural re-use, representation, molecular neuroscience, and neuroscientific experimentation. New authors featured include Gualtiero Piccinini, David Kaplan, Mazviita Chirimuuta, Lauren Ross, Felipe de Brigard, Michael Anderson, Brit Brogaard, Ann-Sophie Barwich, Karim Bschir, and Jacqueline Sullivan, as well as recent work by more senior philosophers of neuroscience.

The new version of the entry can be found here.
