"A major frontier of the social sciences is to integrate cognitive science with social science. Mark Turner's pioneering study is an imaginative contribution which will, I believe, force social scientists to turn their attention to this frontier."-- Douglass C. North, 1993 Nobel Laureate in Economics, Spencer T. Olin Professor in Arts and Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis

I find this book rather fuzzy when it comes down to the details. What exactly is the state of contemporary cognitive science? What theories of social science would we have to discard when we take this research into account? What would this integration mean for modelling and testing? Turner is quite neubolus on questions like these, and offers surprisingly few references to neurobiological studies. He does not care to present too much evidence in support for his theories. I expected more rigour from this book, honestly.
