Great Contemporaries in Cognitive Science and Related Endeavors

This project seeks to understand and explain the cognitive productivity of people who have contributed to the scientific understanding of the human mind.

Some of the content for this project is included in blog posts tagged with featured-minds.

This project will lead to an edited (multi-author) book. In particular, there will be chapters on Claude Lamontagne of the University of Ottawa and Aaron Sloman of the University of Birmingham, who are both mentioned several times on this blog.

This project is inspired by Winston Churchill’s book Great Contemporaries. Winston Churchill’s own cognitive productivity is unparalleled in the history of politics. The first Cognitive Productivity is dedicated to his memory (and that of Pierre Trudeau and Jacques Brel).
