Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Comprising 16 essays by noted psychologists and brain scientists whose profound thinking is matched by their lucid prose, this volume brings the serious amateur as well as the professional a real appreciation of the state of the field and its future. Solso (psychology, Univ. of Nevada) sets an exemplary standard in editing the papers, all of which are readable and stimulating, and he provides a summary chapter at the end that some readers may find helpful as a beginning. Prediction is hazardous, but the writers?many of the most important names in the field?take risks prudently and with good humor. The three sections deal with consciousness, brain and mind, and psychology (memory, theory, and cognition). The practical impact of the work comes through, especially in "The Memory Trainers" by Gay Snodgrass (the sole woman here), who pursues the idea that we can determine whether and when we will lose essential brain functions as we age. Other topics are less sensational but equally important. Readers will find clear treatments of scientific method, the importance and limits of theory, the difference between the sciences, and the history of psychology. Essential for most libraries.?E. James Lieberman, George Washington Univ. Sch. of Medicine, Washington, D.C.
