In the early 1960s, the bold project of the emerging field of
cognition was to put the human mind under the scrutiny of rational
inquiry, through the conjoined efforts of philosophy, linguistics,
computer science, psychology, and neuroscience. Forty years later,
cognitive science is a flourishing academic field. The contributions
to this collection, written in honor of Jacques Mehler, a founder of
the field of psycholinguistics, assess the progress of cognitive
science. The questions addressed include: What have we learned or not
learned about language, brain, and cognition? Where are we now? Where
have we failed? Where have we succeeded? The book is organized into
four sections in addition to the introduction: thought, language,
neuroscience, and brain and biology. Some chapters cut across several
sections, attesting to the cross-disciplinary nature of the field.
