Call for book or chapter proposals: Series in “Cognitive Science”
Vernon Press invites book or chapter proposals on Cognitive Science. All areas of study, with the common goal of understanding the nature of human mind are encouraged to submit, including disciplines such as Psychology, Anthropology, Neuroscience, Linguistics, Artificial Intelligence, Philosophy, Education, and more.
A long way has been walked from the early precursors of modern cognitive science. From the mid-50s, researchers and technology have worked in parallel to elucidate how the brain functions. It turns out that we have learned more about the brain in the past three decades than in all the rest of history. As a result, the amount of scientific information regarding the mind - once known as a “black box”- is nowadays, overwhelming.
The series will cover the latest scientific research on the mind and its processes, from diverse perspectives. The ambition is to create a distinctive and authoritative series that facilitates a common understanding across diverse disciplines and approaches and acts as stepstone for further advances. We seek not only original contributions, but also syntheses and reviews that take stock of the current state of the art. We particularly welcome works that popularize recent advances in the sciences of the mind or explore their social implications. In doing so we aspire to provide a wide audience to the fascinating discipline of cognitive science.
Possible contributions may include, for instance, the following topics (non-comprehensive list, open to suggestions):
- consciousness, perception, thinking, judgment, memory, language, emotions, learning, decision-making…
- sensory (visual, auditory, tactile…) illusions
- cross-cultural comparisons
- brain development, related disorders; brain diseases, consequences, treatment
- brain plasticity
- collective intelligence
- brain and body
- theoretical discussions/commentaries on contemporary cognitive science-related topics
- reflections on the implications of scientific findings on every-day life events
- technology/tools supporting cognitive science research
