"Will WE be witness to a true revolution in the mind sciences?"
Several profound revolutions have been part of the developmental trajectory of contemporary science, in particular in the physical and in the biological sciences. While cognitive science fosters a multifaceted approach to the study of mind which has generated substantial progress, no similar revolutions have yet taken place. Indeed, current approaches to the mind-body problem may be failing to take seriously phenomena that are very relevant to understanding the neurobiology of mind.
