The unifying theme of these thirteen essays is understanding.
What is it? What does it take to have it? What does it presuppose in what can be understood? In the first group of essays, John Haugeland addresses mind and intelligence. Intelligibility comes to the fore in a set of "metaphysical" pieces on analog and digital systems and supervenience.
In the third set of paper The unifying theme of these thirteen essays is understanding. In the third set of papers, Haugeland elaborates and then undermines a battery of common presuppositions about the foundational notions of intentionality and representation. Finally, the fourth and most recent group of essays confronts the essential character of understanding in relation to what is understood. The necessary interdependence between personality and intelligence is developed and explained, specifically in the conditions of the possibility of objective scientific knowledge.

Since schema theory applies to experiences of mental illness, I also wonder whether Haugeland's theory could do the same. Mar 19, Robert rated it it was amazing Shelves: philosophy.
I had the great fortune to study under John Haugeland as an undergraduate at Pitt I believe he's at Chicago now. His classes were challenging and engaging--the quality of teaching in that department was better than the graduate school I attended--and he is a very kind person to boot.
