4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Guillermo Macbeth on September 17, 2003
Format: Paperback
Cognitive psychology started to study the self-monitoring and self-control possibilities of the human mind in the 1970's. The topic configurated a promising research area in the 1990's. Metcalfe & Shimamura have selected for this book a representative sample of the field until 1994. The selection includes basic and applied research focused on memory monitoring, problem solving monitoring, metacognition development, and some classic methodological issues. A reedition would probably need to include a chapter on attributions monitoring, and a chapter on the philosophy of mind.
This book gives the best state-of-the-art until 1994. All the researchers on metacognition should read this selection carefully to avoid ill-structured studies.
