Table of contents
"This is an excellent volume on the growing field of thinking and reasoning, now a part of high-level human cognition which includes creative thinking, decision making and problem solving. These have of late become increasingly important areas of inquiry and scientific research.
The better we understand ourselves and others, the happier are the lives we can lead. The editors and contributors therefore deserve to be applauded for this monumental work which contributes immensely to understanding ourselves and our thoughts." -- BizIndia
"This comprehensive treatment of human thinking should be of value to anyone who is
interested in human cognition and the many ways in which it can be conceptualized,
modeled, and studied. Holyoak and Morrison in the Oxford Handbook also provide
suggestions for organizing the chapters in the book for use as a text for advanced
undergraduates (very advanced, I'd add) and graduate students. All of these potential readers should find many issues worth thinking about in the 836 pages of this book." -- PsycCRITIQUES
