Synopses & Reviews
The field of thinking has undergone a revolution in recent years, opening itself up to new perspectives and applications. The traditional focus on laboratory-based thinking has transformed as theoretical work is now being applied to new contexts and real world issues.
This volume presents a state-of-the-art survey of human thinking in everyday life, based around, and in tribute to, one of the field s most eminent figures: Ken Manktelow.
In this collection of cutting edge research, Manktelow s collaborators and colleagues review a wide range of important and developing areas of inquiry. The book explores modern perspectives on a variety of traditional and contemporary topics, including Wason s reasoning tasks, logic, meta-reasoning, and the effect of environment and context on reasoning.
The Thinking Mind offers a unique combination of breadth, depth, theoretical exploration and real world applications, making it an indispensable resource for researchers and students of human thinking
