    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    How is one to understand the nature of intelligence? One approach is through psychometric testing, but such an approach often puts the "cart before the horse"--the test before the theory. Another approach is to use evolutionary theory. This criterion has been suggested by a number of individuals in the past, from Charles Darwin in the more distant... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 53.95

    Does the world appear the same to everyone? Does what we know determine what we see? Why do we see the world as we do? Vision is our most dominant sense.

    Oxford University Press, USA 2010; US$ 22.99

Recently, thanks to new techniques and... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 140.00

    How do people search evidence for a hypothesis? A well documented answer in cognitive psychology is that they search for confirming evidence.
