Summary
"The Foundations of Cognitive Science is a set of thirteen new essays on key topics in this interdisciplinary field, by an international line-up of authors. Philosophers, psychologists, and neurologists here come together to investigate such subjects as consciousness, vision, rationality, artificial life, the neural basis of language, cognition, and emotion, and the relations between mind and world, for instance our representation of numbers and space. Anyone interested in the exploration of the human mind will enjoy this book."--BOOK JACKET
