Like Caesars Gaul, this book is divided into three parts, and like Caesars book (The Conquest of Gaul), it is about domains, border conflicts, and imperialism in this case, the shifting border between psychology and neuroscience, and the possibility that psychology will be annexed by and incorporated in neuroscience. Is there a possibility that psychology will be reduced to or even replaced by neuroscience? That depends on what is meant by reduction in general (Part I), it depends on how theories in different sciences can be related (Part II), and it depends on empirical evidence (Part III). Thus, in this book, both the philosophical framework, the conceptual and metaphysical foundations, as well as the empirical evidence for such reductive claims are addressed.
