Overview

What would happen if someone brought together the finest minds in psychology to reflect on the past century and speculate on the future of the field in the twenty-first century? Robert Solso and Dominic Massaro did just that, and the result is this fascinating, insightful, and sometimes humorous collection of essays from leading psychologists, among them Gordon Bower, Howard Gardner, Richard Gregory, Earl Hunt, Stephen Kosslyn, Jean Mandler, Donald Norman, Roger Shepard, Roger Sperry, and Robert Sternberg. American psychology recently reached its centennial, and these contributions offer a glimpse of what sorts of developments and innovations we can expect over the next century. For anyone with a professional or personal interest in psychology, this wide-ranging work will provoke thought and discussion about the shape of psychology as we approach the next century.
