2 Human Abilities in Cultural Context

S.H. Irvine and J.W. Berry (eds.)

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1988, 0-521-34482-4 / 9780521344821, First Edition, Hard Cover, Fine, Fair, 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Human Abilities in Cultural Context constitutes a major new reference frame for conceptualizing and studying human abilities. It is a unique contribution. Part I offers a reevaluation of ability theory by the editors, S. H. Irvine and J. W. Berry, and strong individual statements by H. J. Eysenck, Arthur R. Jensen, Joseph R. Royce, and Robert J. Sternberg, who represent markedly different approaches to the measurement of intelligence. Part II reviews various regional and national empirical studies in Britain, Norway, Turkey, Australia, China, Japan, SOuthern Africa, and North America. Part III focuses on contexts in which the limits of assessment by psychological tests are defined: in minority native groups in North America, in migrants to Britain, in lower-caste enclaves in India, among African minorities, and among Australian Aborigines. Written by long-term residents of the regions in question, these chapters present a wealth of new data that has been ignored in Western formulations of theory and practice. After five years of editorial labor, Irvine and Berry have issued one of the best-informed, most sustained scientific challenges to conventional wisdom about the nature of mental abilities and the conditions that foster their development in decades - a challenge to which psychologists and educators must respond.

4 The Making of Cognitive Science: Essays in Honour of George A. Miller

William Hirst (ed.)

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1988, 0-521-34255-4 / 9780521342551, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, Very Good, 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Cognitive Science is a relatively new field that has grown to maturity over the past 30 years. It represents the convergence of workers in diverse disciplines- artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology- in a unified effort to understand human mental life. This book is a collection of essays about the development of cognitive science by colleagues of George A. Miller, a central figure whose own intellectual history is to a large extent a history of the field. The distinguished contributors were invited to write about the period in which each of them was most closely associated with him - to try to recapture on paper the intellectual climate of the time and to place, retrospectively, each successive research venture in its larger context. They take the story from work on formalism in psychology in the late 1950¹s to the organization of the Center for Cognitive Studies at Harvard, where many first-generation cognitive psychologists were trained, to the expanding interdisciplinary enterprises of first psycholinguistics and then the cognitive neuroscience, and finally to the institutionalization of cognitive science within universities. Together, they essays constitute a fascinating and readable personal account of the way in which an exciting new science has come into being. The Making of Cognitive Science will be welcomed by broad audience in the cognitive science community, as well as by historians of psychology. Printed Pages: 296. 003131
