The Peripheral Mind (OUP, 2013) now on pre-sale

with 4 comments

My debut book, The Peripheral Mind. Philosophy of Mind and the Peripheral Nervous System (OUP, 2013) now on pre-sale. Check out the official FB page of the book for all the relevant links. The cover art by Alex Robciuc, as well as advance praise by Shaun Gallagher are pasted below. Enjoy!


“Aranyosi’s The Peripheral Mind develops an innovative approach to a variety of important topics in philosophy of mind. He offers a critical embodied perspective that draws strongly on empirical science but operates on the same turf and in the same vocabulary as mainstream analytic philosophy of mind. At the same time, Aranyosi offers a critical perspective on recent embodied theories, showing how they have ignored some of the most important aspects of bodily experience. In effect, I think this book will generate a productive debate that both mainstream philosophers of mind and proponents of the more enactive and extended styles of embodiment theory will have to join.”

–Shaun Gallagher, Lillian and Morrie Moss Professor of Philosophy, University of Memphis, and author of How the Body Shapes the Mind (OUP, 2005)
