Most human thinking is thoroughly informed by context, but, until recently, theories of reasoning have concentrated on abstract rules and generalities that make no reference to this crucial factor. "Perspectives on Contexts" brings together essays from leading cognitive scientists to forge a vigorous interdisciplinary understanding of the contextual phenomenon. Applicable to human and machine cognition in philosophy, artificial intelligence, and psychology, this volume is essential to the current renaissance in thinking about context.
