This debate-style reader is assembled to introduce students to controversies in cognitive science. The scientific quest to understand human thinking and to imitate thinking artificially with computer software is surrounded by controversies from theory to application. The readings represent the arguments of leading cognitive scientists, researchers, and psychologists. They reflect opposing viewpoints and the issues have been selected for their substance, vitality, and relevance. By requiring students to analyze these issues and reach considered judgments, Taking Sides actively develops critical thinking, research, and presentation skills.
