Description - The Making of Cognitive Science by William Hirst

Nineteen distinguished contributors provide 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. Each contributor was invited to write about the period in which each was most closely associated with Miller--to try to recapture the intellectual climate of the time and to place, retrospectively, each successive research venture in its larger context. Together the 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 a broad audience in the cognitive science community, as well as by historians of psychology.
