Editorial Reviews


"...Formal Approaches in Categorization is well laid out and thought through.... In this volume, it is clear that the goal is to provide a serious overview for the serious reader.... a work we can all be proud of. It gets a "Number A" from me."
--Jeffrey K. Smith, University of Otago, New Zealand, PsycCRITIQUES

Book Description

The process of constructing concepts underpins our capacity to encode information efficiently but also, our ability to think in terms of abstract ideas such as justice, love and happiness. This book brings together many prominent formal approaches to categorization, evaluating the state of the art in this fascinating area.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a graduate student who does cognitive psychology research, and this book on categorization is fantastic. It is a handy guide that I keep by me all the time. It nicely lays out multiple approaches to categorization and gives you enough of an idea of each. You can find more sources to go in-depth on these topics. The price is right, too.
