Abstract: The writing of this book was the major objective of a sabbatical kindly granted to me by the Faculty of Arts at the University of Alberta for the 2010–2011 aca- demic year. My research is supported by research grants awarded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. I would like to especially thank my wife Nancy Digdon for her comments and support during writing. This book is ded- icated to my two graduate school mentors, Albert Katz and Zenon Pylyshyn. This book is also dedicated to their academic grandchildren: all of the students that I have had the pleasure of supervising in the Biological Computation Project at the University of Alberta.
Description: This book is written with a particular audience in mind: the students that I see on a day-to-day basis in my classes. Such students are often senior undergraduates who have already been exposed to one of the core disciplines related to cognitive science. Others are graduate students with a deeper exposure to one of these disciplines. One goal of writing this book is to provide a set of ideas to such students that will help elaborate their understanding of their core discipline and show its relationship to cognitive science. Another is to provide a solid introduction to the foundational ideas of the cognitive sciences. I will admit from the outset that this book is much more about the ideas in cognitive science than it is about the experimental methodologies, the extant data, or the key facts in the field. This is not to say that these topics are unimportant. My perspective is simply that sometimes an emphasis on the empirical results from dif- ferent content areas of cognitive science at times obscures the “bigger picture.” In my opinion, such results might indicate quite clearly what cognitive science is about, but do not reveal much about what cognitive science is. Fortunately, the student of cognitive science has the option of examining a growing array of introductory texts to compensate for the kinds of omissions that the approach taken in the current book necessitates.
