The Foundations of Cognitive Science

Edited by Michael I. Posner

A Bradford Book





What is cognitive science? Foundations of Cognitive Science answers this question in a way that gives a feeling for the excitement, ferment, and accomplishments of this new field. It is the first broad treatment of cognitive science at an advanced level.

Complete and authoritative, Foundations of Cognitive Science covers the major architectures; provides background in philosophy, linguistics, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience; and deals with methods for studying both brain and mind. All of the chapters have been written especially for the book by the leading scholars in the field.

  • Posner is to be congratulated on having brought together so many distinguished authors, each contributing a tutorial chapter on their particular branch of the science. The best of these are exemplary, and few of them fall below a high standard.
