Human Cognition by R. Kim Guenther

This book introduces the essential and enduring contrasts that cognitive scientists study and reflects the state of the field through its own distinct point of view. Readers will gain an appreciation of the manner in which cognitive scientists resolve controversies while advancing what we know about human mental life.<P>Covering every major topic in cognition with over 1300 references to recently published research and emerging ideas, each chapter opens with a contrast between two perspectives and is organized around a discussion of the contrast and its implications. Much of the cited research has ecological validity that relates the ideas, controversies, and theories to everyday life. It presents individual physiological-, cultural-, and gender-based differences in cognition. It also emphasizes the Darwinian adaptability of cognitive processes. And, finally, it presents the growing consensus that the human mind does not function like a digital computer, but rather is multifaceted.
