An invitation to cognitive science by Stephen Michael Kosslyn( )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Phrase and paraphrase; some innovative uses of language by Lila R Gleitman( Book )

14 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the realm of psycholinguistics there is a need to investigate linguistic performance based on the generative transformational concept of linguistic competence, I.E., based on the speaker-listener's knowledge of his language. Psycholinguistics must determine how underlying knowledge is related to overt performance. The nominalization and compounding processes of English provide an area for experimentation where the psychologist may investigate individual linguistic performance. After a grammatical sketch of compound nouns, the authors report on an experiment analyzing the ability of individuals to paraphrase compound nouns and to recognize paraphrases. A discussion of the results provides insight into individual performance of a particular linguistic operation. The appendix furnishes details of the experiment, and a bibliography is included. (Vm)

On concepts, modules, and language : cognitive science at its core( Book )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the landmarks of the cognitive revolution? What are the core topics of modern cognitive science? Where is cognitive science heading? These and other questions are addressed in this volume by leading cognitive scientists as they examine the work of one of cognitive science's most influential and polemical figures: Jerry Fodor. Contributions by Noam Chomsky, Tom Bever, Merrill Garrett, Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini, Zenon Pylyshyn, Janet Fodor, C. Randy Gallistel, Ernie Lepore, Mary C. Potter, LIla R. Gleiman, and others, put in perspective Fodor's contribution to cognitive science by focusing on three main themes: the nature of concepts, the modularity of language and vision, and the language of thought. On Modules, Concepts, and Language: Cognitive Science at Its Core is a one-of-a-kind series of essays on cognitive science and on Fodor. In this volume, Chomsky contrasts, for the first time, his view of modularity with that of Fodor's; Bever - one of the pioneers of modern psycholinguistics - discusses the nature of consciousness in particular with respect to language perception; Gerrett - another of the pioneers of psycholinguistics - reassesses his view of modularity in language perception; Pylyshyn - one of the leading figures of the modern symbolic, computational view of the mind - presents his view of the connection between visual perception and conceptual attainment; Gallistel - one of the most prominent cognitive neuroscientists - presents a proposal on what the biological bases of the computational theory of mind might be. Massimo Piatelli-Palmarini discusses Fodor's views on conceptual nativism, stemming from the epic debate between Chomsky and Piaget, which PIattelli-Palmarini organized. These and many other key figures on cognitive science are brought together, for the first time, constituting the most up-to-date critical view of some of cognitive science's most polemical topics and its prospects as the science of the mind. This volume is aimed at students and advanced researchers in core areas of cognitive science and is bound to become of of the classics in the field. -- from dust jacket

5 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Invitation to Cognitive Science provides a point of entry into the vast realm of cognitive science by treating in depth examples of issues and theories from many subfields. The first three volumes of the series cover Language, Visual Cognition, and Thinking. Volume 4, Methods, Models, and Conceptual Issues, expands the series in new directions. The chapters span many areas of cognitive science--including artificial intelligence, neural network models, animal cognition, signal detection theory, computational models, reaction-time methods, and cognitive neuroscience. The volume also offers introductions to several general methods and theoretical approaches for analyzing the mind, and shows how some of these approaches are applied in the development of quantitative models. Rather than general and inevitably superficial surveys of areas, the contributors present "case studies"--Detailed accounts of one or two achievements within an area. The goal is to tell a good story, challenging the reader to embark on an intellectual adventure. Daniel N. Osherson, general editor
