Summary
  • With 1001 entries ranging from brief statements to substantial essays on major topics, The Oxford Companion to the Mind takes the reader on a lively tour of this endlessly fascinating subject, spanning many questions and answers within the broad compass of philosophy, psychology, and the physiology of the brain. A. J. Ayer writes on philosophical views of the relation between mind and body, John Bowlby on attachment, Chomsky on his own theory of language, R. D. Laing on interpersonal experience, Alexander Luria on neurolinguistics, and B. F. Skinner on behaviourism. The editor, Richard Gregory, has written on perception and illusions
  • The Companion includes entries on such everyday but puzzling experiences as sleep, humour, and hearing, as well as less likely topics: bilingualism, jet-lag, military incompetence, calculating geniuses, and computer chess. The ways in which our senses can be deceived are treated in full, as are human, animal, and artificial intelligence, emotions, childhood, ageing, language and learning, sexual problems, criminology, deja vu, and the controversial world of parapsychology, with its altered states of consciousness, and claims of ESP
