Description: From the cover: “George Miller (who is Co-director of the Centre for Cognitive Studies at Harvard and whose book, Psychology: The Science of Mental Life, has already been published in Pelicans) discusses, in these seven essays, information and memory; the limits to the human capacity for processing information; psychical research; psycholinguistics; computers and cognition; and, finally, his own intellectual hobby, Project Grammarama, an attempt to investigate how people learn the grammatical rules underlying artificial languages. Amused and amusing in expression, these essays are united by a concern for problems at the intersection of scientific psychology and communication theory.”
Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). In the Pelican series. 192 pages.
