Embedded cognition and mental causation: Setting empirical Bounds on metaphysics [Book Review]

Synthese 158 (1):109 - 125 (2007)
We argue that embedded cognition provides an argument against Jaegwon Kim’s neural reduction of mental causation. Because some mental, or at least psychological processes have to be cast in an externalist way, Kim’s argument can be said to lead to the conclusion that mental causation is as safe as any other form of higher-level of causation.
