This new Major Work in a key area of psychological study and research has been bought together by one of Europe's leading cognitive scientists and will be included as part of the SAGE Benchmarks in Psychology series. Drawing upon highly influential classic and contemporary sources, Koen Lambert guides us through the central defining papers that anchor the field of Cognitive Science. Taken together, the six volumes will provide access to the key debates within the field and all the main lines of research that have emerged.
The Major Work consists of 80 papers and is organised into the following six volumes:
Volume One: Perception - Object Recognition - Categorization
Volume Two: Attention - Learning
Volume Three: Memory
Volume Four: Language and Speech
Volume Five: Discourse Comprehension - Reasoning
Volume Six: Judgment and Decision Making
The six volumes present an interdisiplinary collection of wide ranging readings taken from leading behavioural sciences publications, including highly cited theoretical articles and empirical articles that have had great impact on the key debates in the field.
