The Cambridge Handbook of Thinking and Reasoning
The Cambridge Handbook of Thinking and Reasoning is the first comprehensive and authoritative handbook covering all the core topics of the field of thinking and reasoning. Written by the foremost experts from cognitive psychology, cognitive science, and cognitive neuroscience, individual chapters summarize basic concepts and findings for a major topic, sketch its history, and give a sense of the directions in which research is currently heading. The volume also includes work related to developmental, social and clinical psychology, philosophy, economics, artificial intelligence, linguistics, education, law, and medicine. Scholars and students in all these fields and others will find this to be a valuable collection. Keith J. Holyoak is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He has made a number of major contributions to the scientific understanding of human thinking and has pioneered modern work on the role of analogy in thinking.

Robert G. Morrison is president of Xunesis (www.xunesis.org), a not-for-profit company that encourages people to integrate science with their everyday lives through performance and media art that engages, entertains, and educates in both traditional and nontraditional educational settings. He received his Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience from UCLA. His research involves understanding how the human brain implements and constrains higher cognition.
