"A valuable contribution to our understandingg of brain/mind relationships in cognitive processes. It should be required reading for all those who still believe that we are only affected by stimuli of which we are conscious." --N. F. Dixon in The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
[This book] simultaneously presents us with a wealth of scholarly information concerning what is really known about subliminal perception and a good old fashioned dramatic story about a scholarly community struggling to come to terms with observations threatening some of their favorite values and theories. In every chapter, we witness the interaction between the purely cognitive and personal sides of doing science. Happily, we also witness the power of persistence, deep curiosity, and sharp intellect to bring reasonable meaning to a major area of psychological research.' --Seymour Fisher, Ph.D.
"Bornstein and Pittman's volume provides an inside view of the ongoing explosion of research on unconscious cognition. The editors' decision to mix cognitive, clinical, and social perspectives effectively displays the breadth of recent work, and establishes that these diverse perspectives can and do communicate with one another. The selected contributors are outstanding among active researchers, and their chapters capture recent and influential work while it is still very fresh." --Tony Greenwald, Ph.D.
