This is the introductory chapter to the forthcoming collection, Philosophical Foundations of Law and Neuroscience (Dennis Patterson & Michael S. Pardo eds., Oxford University Press, 2016). We first offer some observations about this rapidly growing field and the variety of issues raised by the interaction of law and neuroscience. We then discuss how philosophy may contribute to the field. Finally, we summarize the chapters in the book.
