Abstract:

According to the widespread conceptualist view, all mental contents
are governed by concepts an individual possesses. In recent years,
however, an increasing number of philosophers have argued for the
indispensability of nonconceptual content based on perceptual,
emotional, and qualitative experiences; informational and
computational states; memory; and practical knowledge. Writers from
disciplines as varied as the philosophy of mind, cognitive science,
artificial intelligence, epistemology, linguistics, religious
psychology, and aesthetics have challenged conceptualism.

This book offers some of the most important work on nonconceptual
content in the philosophy of mind and psychology. It is divided into
four parts. Part 1 presents influential positions that have helped to
shape the contemporary debate. Part 2 focuses on arguments informed
specifically by the naturalization of intentionality or the
characterization of computational structure. Part 3 offers various
attempts at motivating the need for nonconceptual content based on
experiential phenomena such as perception, emotion, and
memory. Finally, part 4 considers whether nonconceptual content can be
used to explain the behavior of entities lacking conceptual capacities
in addition to the actions of individuals possessing concepts.

York H. Gunther is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at California
State University at Northridge.
