The Oxford Companion to the Mind,edited by Richard L. Gregory, is a classic. Published in 1987, to huge acclaim, it immediately took its place as the indispensable guide to the mysteries - and idiosyncracies - of the human mind. In no other book can the reader find indiscussions of concepts such as language, memory, and intelligence, side by side with witty definitions of common human experiences such as the 'cocktail-party' and 'halo' effects, and the least effort principle.

Richard Gregory again brings his wit, wisdom, and expertise to bear on this most elusive of subjects. Research into the mind and brain has moved on in bounds in recent years, and interest in the subject has never been so high. There has been a shift in focus away from Freud's concept of the unconscious onto consciousness itself. The new edition of the Companion includes three 'mini symposia' - on consciousness, brain scanning, and artificial intelligence - with contributions from a number of specialists, and encompassing a range of approaches.

Review:

This wonderful companion has lived in my study and been a pleasure for browsing. Richard Gregory is surely the ideal guide for a grand tour of the mind- engaging and personable, his stamp is impressed throughout, with wit, humour, knowledge, insights and eccentricities, as well as fine obituaries. Without doubt this would make a perfect present for any psychologist or would-be psychologist student. (The Psychologist)

Review from previous edition any reader with a serious interest in mental phenomena will find this a feast of a book (Times Higher Education Supplement)

a masterful compilation in one volume of virtually every important aspect of mind, brain and consciousness (Washington Post)

This new edition deserves a place on the shelf of any psychology buff (FT Magazine)

the book is wholly admirable and will give pleasure, enlightenment and stimulation in all the years to come (Guardian)

The second edition of Richard Gregory's lovely book does justice to the greatness of its subject and to its renowned predecessor. (Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine)

The book's compact and sober exterior belies a breadth and exuberance as astonishing as the paradoxes it celebrates. (Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine)

...universally readable, frequently entertaining, and sometimes historic pieces ranging in scope from definitions and brief vignettes to substantial essays. (Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine)

About the Author:
