An Invitation to Cognitive Science provides a point of entry intothe vast realm of cognitive science, offering selected examples of issues and theories from many ofits subfields. All of the volumes in the second edition contain substantially revised and as well asentirely new chapters.
Rather than surveying theories and data in the mannercharacteristic of many introductory textbooks in the field, An Invitation to CognitiveScience employs a unique case study approach, presenting a focused research topic in somedepth and relying on suggested readings to convey the breadth of views and results. Each chaptertells a coherent scientific story, whether developing themes and ideas or describing a particularmodel and exploring its implications.
The volumes are self contained and can beused individually in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses ranging from introductorypsychology, linguistics, cognitive science, and decision sciences, to social psychology, philosophyof mind, rationality, language, and vision science.
