Modularity of Mind by Jerry A. Fodor
Book DescriptionThis study synthesizes current information from the various fields of cognitive science in support of a new and exciting theory of mind. Most psychologists study horizontal processes like memory and information flow; Fodor postulates a vertical and modular psychological organization underlying biologically coherent behaviors. This view of mental architecture is consistent with the historical tradition of faculty psychology while integrating a computational approach to mental processes. One of the most notable aspects of Fodor's work is that it articulates features not only of speculative cognitive architectures but also of current research in artificial intelligence.

Lot 2, Paperback (July 2010)
Jerry Fodor presents a new development of his famous Language of Thought hypothesis, the idea that thinking is couched in a symbolic system realized in the brain; since the 1970s this has been at the centre of debate about how the mind works. No one who studies the mind can ignore Fodor's views, expressed in his coruscating and provocative style.
Hume Variations, Paperback (November 2005)
David Hume's Treatise of Human Nature is claimed as the foundational document of cognitive science. This book examines his account of cognition and how it is grounded in his 'theory of ideas'. It discusses such topics as the distinction between 'simple' and 'complex' ideas, the thesis that an idea is some kind of picture, and more.
