Abstract Frankish (philosophy, Open U.) argues that adopting Daniel Dennett's theory of mind--mentalist discourse is a shallow but useful way of characterizing and predicting people's behavior--does not necess...tate rejecting Jerry Fodor's--everyday mentalistic discourse incorporates a theory of the internal processes that generate behavior. Taking the differences between them seriously, he says, leads to a view of the human mind as a two-level structure in which the two levels are differently constituted and have different functions. We are of two minds, he asserts, so of course must have a two-strand theory of mind. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
