Dear LIST - I was sent then enclosed book announcement by Bob Port of Indiana University <port(at)indiana.edu>, for forwarding to the list. DAn. ------- Forwarded Message Book announcement ::: Available now. `MIND AS MOTION: EXPLORATIONS IN THE DYNAMICS OF COGNITION' edited by Robert Port and Tim van Gelder Bradford Books/MIT Press. >From the dust jacket: `Mind as Motion is the first comprehensive presentation of the dynamical approach to cognition. It contains a representative sampling of original current research on topics such as perception, motor control, speech and language, decision making, and development. Included are chapters by pioneers of the approach, as well as others applying the tools of dynamics to a wide range of new problems. Throughout, particular attention is paid to the philosophical foundations of this radical new research program. Mind as Motion provides a conceptual and historical overview of the dynamical approach, a tutorial introduction to dynamics for cognitive scientists, and a glossary covering the most frequently used terms. Each chapter includes an introduction by the editors, outlining its main ideas and placing it in context, and a guide to further reading.' 668 pages, 139 illustrations ISBN 0-262-16150-8 $60.00 US For further information including the full text of the preface and a sample chapter introduction, see the web page at MIT Press: http://www-mitpress.mit.edu/mitp/recent-books/cog/mind-as-motion.html _________________________________________________ Chapter Titles and Authors 1.Tim van Gelder & Robert Port.
