Parallel distributed processing is transforming the field of cognitive science. Microcognition provides a clear, readable guide to this emerging paradigm from a cognitive philosopher's point of view. It explains and explores the biological basis of PDP, its psychological importance, and its philosophical relevance.

Andy Clark is surely one of the brightest, wisest, wittiest philosophers working in this fast-growing field today. His examples are apt, and his writing is clear and vivid. The book is as authoritative as its tone suggests.

Witty and eloquent.... Definitely worth reading.
