Introducing Cognitive Science from a Functional and Computational Perspective

Martin V. Butz and Esther F. Kutter (2017)

Oxford University Press.


My new book provides an interdisciplinary introduction to cognitive science. It is designed as a textbook for higher undergraduate students studying cognitive science or related disciplines. It may also be interesting to other students, researchers, and everybody who is interested in cognitive science, the mind, and on how the mind comes into being from a deeper, computational and functional perspective.
