Levitin, D., Foundations of Cognitive Psychology: Core Readings: [Review]

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Arts/Article reviewpeer-review


Reviews the book 'Foundations of Cognitive Psychology: Core Readings,' by D. J. Levitin (see record [rid]2003-02712-000[/rid]). Foundations of Cognitive Psychology is a compilation of readings assembled by Daniel Levitin for courses he taught at various universities including MIT and Stanford. As an astute teacher, it is not surprising that Levitin selected pieces both by leading contributors to cognitive psychology, and by those who reflect his own conception of cognitive psychology--that of 'empirical philosophy.' And while the list of authors is very impressive in itself more so is the way he has pulled the whole anthology together into a massive set of readings encompassing the field which totally integrates music science into the mainstream learning of cognitive psychology--without diluting or compromising the individual uniqueness of each domain.
