Cognitive Science

Six Volume Set
Edited by:

January 2008 | 2 602 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This new major work in a key area of psychological study and research has been bought together by one of Europe's leading Cognitive scientists and will be included as part of the Sage Benchmarks in Psychology series. Drawing upon highly influential classic and contemporary sources, Koen Lambert guides readers through the central defining papers that anchor the field of Cognitive Science. Taken together, the six volumes will provide access to the key debates within the field and all the main lines of research that have emerged.

Cognitive Science consists of 80 papers and is organized into the following six volumes:

  • Volume I: Perception – Object Recognition – Categorization
  • Volume II: Attention – Learning
  • Volume III: Memory
  • Volume IV: Language and Speech
  • Volume V: Discourse Comprehension – Reasoning
  • Volume VI: Judgment and Decision Making

The six volumes present an interdisciplinary collection of wide ranging readings taken from leading behavioral sciences publications, including highly cited theoretical articles and empirical articles that have had great impact on the key debates in the field.
