Initials[edit]

MS stands for?

Michael Stephan. I have now included that in the article. Dark Formal 06:46, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Additional Works[edit]

It's worth adding that the debate between Hacker, Dennet, Searle and Bennett has been published:

Neuroscience and Philosophy (Columbia University Press, 2007).

Rosa Lichtenstein 14:33, 22 June 2007 (UTC)


Absolutely. The book closely follows the Bennett/Hacker/Dennett/Searle debate at the 2005 APA Eastern division meeting, which has been available in audio form for some time. It's particularly valuable for the interested layman who has probably come across Dennett and Searle in popular books and articles but has not previously heard of Hacker.

Thanks for that 'Dark Formal'; also worthy of note is Hacker's latest book:

Human Nature, The Categorial Framework (Blackwell, 2007).

OK, I've added that. This is wikipedia: you can add it yourself, you know! Dark Formal (talk) 03:17, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, but I am hopeless with computers and do not know how to do it!
