In this Second Edition of their landmark text, Authors Jay Friedenberg and Gordon Silverman survey significant theoretical models of the human mind from an interdisciplinary perspective. Unlike other texts for this course which focus solely on classic experiments to illustrate major phenomena, Cognitive Science introduces students to the theoretical models and ideas underlying such empirical work. While experiments are discussed, they are used primarily to illustrate the specific characteristics of a model. This edition includes two new chapters on emotional cognition and social cognition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I like the Friedenberg and Silverman Cognitive Science because I've found it to be a more inviting entree to this complex interdisciplinary field than other texts I've previously used. The authors really do a fine job distilling the essential questions from each discipline that contributes to cognitive science for novice students. End-of-chapter reviews are thought-provoking. I'm eagerly awaiting the second addition, with its excellent additional chapters on social and emotional cognition. I think it will improve an already great teaching resource!" -- Kathleen M. Galotti
"The strength of this book is the systematic introduction of the disciplines, methods, and viewpoints that constitute cognitive science. Other books are not as systematic and comprehensive on the overall endeavor of cognitive science. They do not as systematically evaluate different viewpoints as this book does." -- Marc Pomplun
"I like the inclusion of the new chapters on emotional cognition and social cognition. The most impressive aspect of this book to students is its ability to make a large amount of complex material accessible to students." -- Emanual Mason
