9780521342551: The Making of Cognitive Science: Essays in Honor of George Armitage Miller

Nineteen distinguished contributors provide essays about the development of cognitive science by colleagues of George A. Miller, a central figure whose own intellectual history is to a large extent a history of the field. Each contributor was invited to write about the period in which each was most closely associated with Miller--to try to recapture the intellectual climate of the time and to place, retrospectively, each successive research venture in its larger context. Together the essays constitute a fascinating and readable personal account of the way in which an exciting new science has come into being. The Making of Cognitive Science will be welcomed by a broad audience in the cognitive science community, as well as by historians of psychology.

Book Description Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1988. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Cognitive Science is a relatively new field that has grown to maturity over the past 30 years. It represents the convergence of workers in diverse disciplines- artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology- in a unified effort to understand human mental life. This book is a collection of essays about the development of cognitive science by colleagues of George A. Miller, a central figure whose own intellectual history is to a large extent a history of the field. The distinguished contributors were invited to write about the period in which each of them was most closely associated with him - to try to recapture on paper the intellectual climate of the time and to place, retrospectively, each successive research venture in its larger context. They take the story from work on formalism in psychology in the late 1950 s to the organization of the Center for Cognitive Studies at Harvard, where many first-generation cognitive psychologists were trained, to the expanding interdisciplinary enterprises of first psycholinguistics and then the cognitive neuroscience, and finally to the institutionalization of cognitive science within universities. Together, they essays constitute a fascinating and readable personal account of the way in which an exciting new science has come into being. The Making of Cognitive Science will be welcomed by broad audience in the cognitive science community, as well as by historians of psychology. Printed Pages: 296. Size: 16 Cms x 24 Cms.
