Appropriate as a textbook for courses in cognitive psychology or
social cognition, Everyday Thinking reviews the rapidly growing
literature on cognition in naturalistic settings. It differs from
other textbooks in that, where possible, it focuses on thinking in
real-world settings rather than in controlled laboratory settings
and provides detailed treatments of each of the following topics: *
how we form impressions of and represent persons in memory; * how
we recognize and represent faces; * how we reason in our day-to-day
lives and go about solving everyday problems; * how we make
judgments and decisions; * how we encode memories of events--both
for future action and for our own life histories; and * what are
some of the implications of everyday knowledge and cognition for
education and instruction. This book presents the theoretical
positions and research evidence on each of these topics and
examines the generally unexplored connections among them. As a
result, this book presents the study of cognition in a more
relevant form and in a context that readers can more readily apply
to their own lives.
