A Companion to Cognitive Science

Unmatched in the quality of its world-renowned contributors, this multidisciplinary companion serves as both a course text and a reference book across the broad spectrum of issues of concern to cognitive science.

Cognitive science is one of the most exciting intellectual and scientific developments of the second half of the twentieth century, integrating insights from psychology, linguistics, artifical intelligence, neuroscience, philosophy, and other disciplines in an attempt to understand human cognition. It is also a rapitdly transforming domain of inquiry.

This companion presents everything one needs to know about the nature of cognitive science, what it has accomplished, and where it will be going at the start of the twenty-first century. Beginning with an introduction that maps the narrative history of cognitive science as a whole, the volume goes on to present sixty newly commissioned essays that together provide an unparalleled survey of all the topical areas, major methods, and stances. There are explanatory overviews of key controbersies, detailed discussions of the application of work in cognitive science to the real world, and anticipations of future developments.

A Companion to Cognitive Science can be seen as the ultimate resource guide to this fast moving field of study.
