0 Reviews
First published in 1958, this book has become recognized as a classic in its field, marking a transition between behaviorist learning theory and the modern 'information-processing' or cognitive approach to perception and mental skills. The work continues to provide a principal starting point for theoretical and experimental work on selective attention. It will make compelling reading for psychologists and others interested in the recent history of psychology.
