Overview

This readings volume collects the best papers in cognitive science from a unique perspective: the interface between artificial intelligence and cognitive psychology. This perspective presents cognitive science as a synthesis of psychology's empirical analysis of human cognitive processing and the computational modeling of those processes, with the formalisms for knowledge representation and process mechanism provided by AI.

The editors have selected papers that are frequently referenced and representative of major research, relating theoretical ideas to empirical results. An introductory section collects classic papers laying out the foundational issues in cognitive science and the general assumptions of computational modeling and cognitive architecture.Major sections, introduced by the editors, address representation, categorization, learning, thinking, and perception.

Accessible to a broad audience of cognitive scientists, researchers and students in AI, psychology, cognitive science, and related areas. An excellent principal or supplemental text, Readings in Cognitive Science offers a challenging perspective on one of the richest interdisciplinary collaborations in research today.
