In addition to presenting explanatory models of cognitive abilities, another important goal of this volume is to examine some questions that give rise to fundamental philosophical issues for the Cognitive Science: we cannot easily overlook the ‘intrinsic’ philosophical difficulties involved in the studies of human mind. That´s why the volume includes philosophical papers of particular interest for psychologists, computer scientists, and linguists. In sum, this book is a collection of papers written from a multidisciplinar, cognitive perspective, and addressing various essential topics such as: (1) Decision Making and Social Action; (2) Evolution, Modularity, and Mind; (3) Intentions in Communication; and (4) Relevant Information, Attention, and Learning by Doing.
