To the vast majority of academic psychologists in the 1980s, the study of cognition referred to that area of psychology known as `cognitive psychology'. The major basis of this area had been the computer metaphor with its accompanying notion of the individual as an information-processing system. Yet within the field the study of cognition is much broader and has a history that reaches into antiquity, whereas `cognitive psychology' as information-processing psychology had only recently become the standard bearer of cognitive studies.

One of the purposes of this volume, originally published in 1986, was to articulate some of the fundamental distinctions between and concordances among different orientations concerning the study of cognition. The collection includes chapters on information processing, ecological, Gestalt, physiological, and operant psychology.
