Susan Schneider is a Fellow of the IEET and an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy, University of Connecticut. She focuses on issues involving the philosophy of cognitive science and, in particular, the plausibility of computational theories of mind and theoretical issues in artificial intelligence. Her books include The Language of Thought: a New Direction, The Blackwell Companion to Consciousness (with Max Velmans), and Science Fiction and Philosophy. In a book she is currently working on, The Mind-Body Problem, she urges that neglected issues in metaphysics should lead us to revise, or even discard, leading approaches to the mind and person, and she advances a different sort of approach, one that is grounded in metaphysics. Her papers have appeared in journals such as Nous, Mind and Language, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, and Philosophical Studies.
