- Through the Rearview Mirror: Historical Reflections on Psychology byCall Number: eBookISBN: 058515712XPublication Date:
In this lively book, John Macnamara shows how a number of important thinkers through the ages have approached problems of mental representation and the acquisition of knowledge. He discusses the relevance of these approaches to modern cognitive psychology, focusing on central themes that he believes have strongly influenced modern psychology. This is not a neutral historical survey, but a vehicle for Macnamara’s compelling and provocative arguments on the relevance and worth of certain aspects of psychological and philosophical thought.
