EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"Theory of mind" is the phrase researchers use to refer to children's understanding of people as mental beings, who have beliefs, desires, emotions, and intentions, and whose actions and interactions can be interpreted and explained by taking account of these mental states. The gradual development of children's theory of mind, particularly during the early years, is by now well described in the research literature. What is lacking, however, is a decisive explanation of how children acquire this understanding. Recent research has shown strong relations between children's linguistic abilities and their theory of mind. Yet exactly what role these abilities play is controversial and uncertain. The purpose of this book is to provide a forum for the leading scholars in the field to explore thoroughly the role of language in the development of the theory of mind. This volume will appeal to students and researchers in developmental and cognitive psychology.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Battle for the Mind takes a serious look at the constant raging war in your mind between powerful opposing forces. Are you willingly aiding and abetting the enemy through self-condemnation? Or are you renewing your mind through the Holy Spirit? And be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2). Authors Noel Jones and Georgianna Land present clear and deep revelation about "overhauling your mind" to accept the victory. Their theological and philosophical views provide insight into the enemy's tactics. They share vital Scripture and biblical principles to protect your mind from assaults-powerful attacks meant to pervert and enslave you. The Battle for the Mind explores the mind of Christ Jesus, the Spirit of God, and the power of praise to conquer the enemy and win the battle! Book jacket.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Related to the earlier well-known ACT production system theory, this book's basic goal is to present evidence for the psychological reality of a production system model of mind. Distinguished from the original theory in three ways, this volume uses the rational analyses of Anderson (1990) to improve upon that theory and extend its scope. It also relates the theory to a great deal of new data on the performance and acquisition of cognitive skills. The new theory -- ACT-R -- involves a neurally plausible implementation of a production system architecture. Rational analysis is used to structure and parameterize the system to yield optimal information processing. The theory is applicable to a wide variety of research disciplines, including memory, problem solving, and skill acquisition. Using intelligent tutors, much of the data is concerned with the acquisition of cognitive skills. The book provides analyses of data sets describing the extended course of the acquisition of mathematical and computer programming skills.
