Product Description

Are we rational creatures? Do we have free will? Can we ever know ourselves? These and other fundamental questions have been discussed by philosophers over millennia. But recent empirical findings in psychology and neuroscience suggest we should reconsider them.

This textbook provides an engrossing overview of contemporary debates in the philosophy of psychology, exploring the ways in which the interaction and collaboration between psychologists and philosophers contribute to a better understanding of the human mind, cognition and behaviour. Miyazono and Bortolotti discuss pivotal studies in cognitive psychology, social psychology, developmental psychology, evolutionary psychology, clinical psychology and neuroscience, and their implications for philosophy.

Combining the latest philosophical and psychological research with an accessible style, Philosophy of Psychology is a crucial resource for students from either discipline. It is the most up-to-date text for modules on philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychology, philosophy of mental health and philosophy of cognitive science.

Product Reviews


‘This textbook is up to date, well organized, full of useful resources and, most of all, really engaging. The sections on mental disorders and neurodivergence, written by two of the world’s leading philosophical experts on those topics, are especially fascinating.

  I’m excited to use this book to teach my own class on philosophical psychology!

’Aaron Meskin, University of Georgia‘Philosophy of Psychology combines lucid, scrupulous and insightful synthesis of relevant empirical studies with a philosophical discussion that strikes the perfect balance between exposition and argument. An essential resource for students and researchers alike.

’Philip Gerrans, University of Adelaide‘How are delusions formed?

 Is altruism possible?

 Are we free agents? These are just some of the questions Miyazono and Bortolotti explore in this fascinating volume, which brims with intriguing empirical findings and careful, incisive analyses of the philosophical issues.
