Journal Entry 1 by pulcherrima from Tommerup Stationsby, Fyns Amt Denmark on Thursday, November 29, 2007
Psychology is understood by many as the "science to the mind". But what is the "mind" and what have modern psychology and philosophy to say about its nature? What is "science" and what is a scientific approach to the study of the mind?
This thoroughly revised edition of Bem and Looren de Jong's classic textbook represents an integrated approach to these two foundational questions. It explores a wide range of problems in psychology, philosophy, cognitive and brain sciences, identifying the major topics, debates and controversies.

Key features of this second edition include:
A new, ten-chapter structure - ideal for a lecture coruse on the subject.
New content on advances in cognitive psychology and neuroscience, including neural networks, dynamics systems and situated cognition.
Focus on "hot issues" at the interface of psychology and philosophy - making attempts to look forward.
Pedagogical features - chapter summaries, textboxes and further readings in every chapter.

Brought fully up-to-date with advances in computational, cognitive and neuroscience research as well as links with philosophy, Theoretical Issues in Psychology Secon Edition should be essential reading for all students requiring an understanding of these issues.

Sacha Bem is at the Department of Cognitive Psychology, Leiden University the Netherlands. Huib Looren de Jong is at the Department of Psychology, Vrije Universiteit, the Netherlands.
