  • Vagueness and Degrees of Truthby Nicholas J. J. Smith

  • Externalismby Mark Rowlands

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    It is commonly held that our thoughts, beliefs, desires and feelings - the mental phenomena that we instantiate - are constituted by states and processes that occur inside our head.
