Abstract

This book evaluates whether or not we can decide on the best theory of concepts by appealing to the explanatory results of cognitive science. It undertakes an in-depth analysis of different theories of concepts and of the explanations formulated in cognitive science. As a result, two reasons are provided for thinking that an appeal to cognitive science cannot help to decide on the best theory of concepts. Reviews the state of the art with respect to theories of concepts. Analyses the relation between theories of concepts and cognitive science. .Problematises appeals to cognitive science to determine the best theory of concepts.
