Editorial Reviews


"The 25 chapters and related introductions in The Future of the Cognitive Revolution provide one of the finest compilations of current issues and perspectives within cognitive science. . . . [It] is written in clear and accessible language intended for a wide audience. The editors, Johnson and Erneling, provide masterful introductions to book sections and a general Introduction and Afterword that help the reader to have an overview and navigate through the book. The book could be used in an upper level undergraduate course or a graduate seminar on cognition, or subsets of chapters could be easily incorporated into graduate seminars in related disciplines. I highly recommend this book for new entrants into cognitive science as well as for seasoned researchers. This book should not be ignored."--Contemporary Psychology

"[T]he use of any formal language automatizes and standardizes human thinking. From that point of view, the computer is not a model or a partner for the human mind. It is only an invention that . . . supports human mental skills. If we assume that the chapters presented in parts four and five of The Future of the Cognitive Revolution are something that can influence the mainstream of cognitive science, then we can say that cognitive revolution has a future. This future is the realization that culture together with its psychophysical products . . . constitute the environment of individual minds, that we cannot separate human thought from human action in a particular environment: 'All action involves some amount of awareness, as well as vice versa' (270). Over and above all that, I may say that The Future of the Cognitive Revolution is a consistent collection of more than thirty very good papers written by outstanding authors."--Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences

"Instructive and fun. A valuable supplement."--Choice

From the Back Cover

In Reassessing the Cognitive Revolution, leading scholars from diverse fields of cognitive science-linguistics, psychology, neuropsychology, and philosophy-present their latest, carefully considered judgments about the future of this intellectual movement. Jerome Bruner, Noam Chomsky, Hilary Putnam, and Margaret Boden, among others, have written original chapters in a nontechnical style that can be enjoyed and understood by an interdisciplinary audience of psychologists, philosophers, anthropologists, linguists, and cognitive scientists alike. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This is a very well organized collection of papers. It is written in a language that is accessible to a broad audience. The introductions to book sections are excellent (or, "masterful," as R. Taraban puts it in CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY, 1998, Vol. 43, No. 10, p. 681). The best thing about this book is its coverage of current issues and perspectives in Cognitive Science. I recommend this book as an introductory reading assignment for a graduate course in Artificial Intelligence.
