This volume of original essays describes the state of the art in cognitive science and surveys the major theoretical, philosophical, and foundational issues across the discipline. With a focus on theory rather than technical and applied issues, the volume will be of interest to both cognitive scientists and philosophers of cognitive science. Each chapter is a specially commissioned survey article from a leading writer in the area – either a philosopher of cognitive science or a scientist with strong theoretical interests. There is coverage of the foundations of cognitive science, the principal areas of research, major research methodologies, and the philosophical implications of current research. The approach is thematic rather than historical, and the chapters are primarily survey pieces, though critical assessment is also included, where appropriate.
The volume will be suitable for upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars, with a particular emphasis on the second group. No extensive background knowledge is assumed, either in philosophy or the primary subject areas themselves.
A companion Handbook of Artificial Intelligence is being prepared by the same editors, and the two volumes have been conceived as a pair.
