Winner in the category of Psychology in the 1999 Professional/Scholarly Publishing Annual Awards Competition presented by the Association of American Publishers, Inc. and Choice Outstanding Academic Title, 2000. Since the 1970s the cognitive sciences have offered multidisciplinary ways of understanding the mind and cognition. "The MIT Encyclopedia of the Cognitive Sciences" (MITECS) is a landmark, comprehensive reference work that represents the methodological and theoretical diversity of this changing field. At the core of the encyclopedia are 471 concise entries, from Acquisition and Adaptationism to Wundt and X-bar Theory. Each article, written by a leading researcher in the field, provides an accessible introduction to an important concept in the cognitive sciences, as well as references or further readings. Six extended essays, which collectively serve as a roadmap to the articles, provide overviews of each of six major areas of cognitive science: Philosophy; Psychology; Neurosciences; Computational Intelligence; Linguistics and Language; and Culture, Cognition, and Evolution. For both students and researchers, MITECS will be an indispensable guide to the current state of the cognitive sciences.

"This major work is an impressive and extremely useful volume which stands as an outstanding contribution to the furthering of cognitive science because of its accessibility, comprehensiveness and scope." - Paul Rogers, Journal of Consciousness Studies; "The structure of the book encourages further browsing...so be prepared to spend at least an hour on each session because once you start reading it is very difficult to stop." - David Peebles, Perception
