Summary

To begin with a slogan: context is crucial to comprehending the cognitive. Too many investigators, both scientists and philosophers, have ignored context when thinking about neurology. I’m going to start by discussing an example of what I mean by this slogan taken from the recent philosophy of neuroscience. Then I will draw some broader morals from the slogan, both for philosophical thinking about, for example, minds and brains and persons, and also for scientists who think about these things.
