How Reference Works
How Reference Works (August 1993)
Explanatory Models for Indexicals, Descriptions, and Opacity
Lawrence D. Roberts - Author

"This is a book about how certain referring expressions in a natural language (English) manage to refer to objects in the world when used by speakers. Within the philosophy of language, the problem of reference has never been adequately solved. When viewed as a work in the philosophy of language, this book offers an interesting approach (if not a solution) to the problem of reference. However, the book's appeal is much broader than the philosophy...(Read More)
 
 
Natural and Artificial Minds
Natural and Artificial Minds (August 1993)
Robert G. Burton - Editor

This book describes and explores six current approaches to the study of mind: the neuroscientific, the behavioral, the competence approach, the ecological, the phenomenological, and the computational. No other book in cognitive science covers such a broad range of research programs and topics in such a balanced fashion. The first chapter is a mini-history and philosophy of psychology which reviews some of the scientific developments and philosophic...(Read More)
 
 
Gaps in Nature
Gaps in Nature (July 1993)
Literary Interpretation and the Modular Mind
Ellen Spolsky - Author

"Cognitive Science is arguably the most important intellectual development of the post World War II period. Literary theory, however, has failed almost completely to cope with this fundamental change in the intellectual climate. Spolsky's book is a pioneering effort in this regard. The argument is adventuresome and fresh. Unlike so much of the work which is now being published, it is not a rehash of a re-hash, etc. This is news.

Pretending at Home
Pretending at Home (July 1993)
Early Development in a Sociocultural Context
Wendy L. Haight - Author
Peggy J. Miller - Author

"Pretending at Home provides a close look at how young, middle-class, Euroamerican children and their mothers engage in pretend play. Haight and Miller argue that pretend play is, from its origins, a social, not a solitary, activity. The rich analysis of the play episodes of nine children and their caregivers over the first few years of their lives together yields a very solid portrayal of the development of pretend play. The volume contri...(Read More)
 
 
Scientific Discovery
Scientific Discovery (July 1993)
Logic and Tinkering
Aharon Kantorovich - Author

"This is the best English language book in evolutionary epistemology so far." -- Donald T. Campbell, Lehigh University

"It's comprehensive, thorough, and synthesizes many different ideas and views. It's intelligent, well argued, clear, and well organized. The work as a whole represents an original and worthwhile approach to an imporant issue." -- David B. Resnik, University of Wyoming

Kantorovich analyzes the notion of discovery. He...(Read More)
 
 
Time and Psychological Explanation
Time and Psychological Explanation (July 1993)
Brent D. Slife - Author

"This is a top-notch, scholarly work. I believe that Slife took a very difficult, complex topic and brought considerable understanding to it for the reader. Books of this type raise the level of sophistication in psychology." -- Joseph F. Rychlak, Loyola University

Psychology has been captured by an assumption that is almost totally unrecognized. This assumption--the linearity of time--unduly restricts theory and therapy, yet this restrict...(Read More)
 
 
Understanding Language Acquisition
Understanding Language Acquisition (July 1993)
The Framework of Learning
Christina E. Erneling - Author

How is language acquisition possible? How is it that humans, within a few years of birth, can speak and understand language, transcending both its limited experience and biological limitations?

In this challenge to the narrow confines of psychology and philosophy, Christina Erneling argues that language acquisition results from the interaction between linguistic creativity inherent in language and a biological and social framework of learnin...(Read More)
 
 
Psychology and Nihilism
Psychology and Nihilism (December 1992)
A Genealogical Critique of the Computational Model of Mind
Fred Evans - Author

"Evans' most brilliant stroke consists of demonstrating that cognitive psychology must presuppose the very sorts of things which it presumes it can do without, e.g., tacit understanding and an intimate relation to the life-world. Moreover, Evans suggests that a more positive and productive model of psychology can be devised if attention is paid to the idea of a 'transfigurative rationality' which underlies and surpasses the 'technocratic rationalit...(Read More)
 
 
Cognitive Self-Instruction (CSI) for Classroom Processes
Cognitive Self-Instruction (CSI) for Classroom Processes (May 1991)
Brenda H. Manning - Author

Metacognitive strategies such as cognitive self-instruction have important implications for teaching and learning. Cognitive self-instruction (CSI) has proven successful in improving memory, comprehension, problem-solving, and behavioral self-control of both teachers and students.

This book is the first to combine the theoretical/conceptual and research aspects of CSI with applied classroom practices. Drawing on over a decade of research an...(Read More)
