The aim of this chapter is to provide a map of the ‘cognitive phenomenology’ debate. The authors begin by providing a brief discussion of the historical context in which the debate is situated. The chapter then examines some of the terminological challenges posed by the debate, before considering various ways in which the commitment to cognitive phenomenology can be understood. The second half of the chapter surveys arguments for and against the existence of cognitive phenomenology, and the chapter concludes by considering some of the potential implications of the cognitive phenomenology debate.
