  • If I were to use only a few words to summarize my goal for this book, as well as my teaching philosophy, that’s what I would say. Students fi rst.

Industrial psychology was one of the four original specialties of the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) in 1947.

In his eloquent introduction, Fodor shows how the two areas are thematically united and epistemologically related, highlighting his interest in finding alternatives to holistic accounts of cognitive content.Jerry A.

The sheer tenacity of human curiosity has in our own lifetimes brought answers to many of the most challenging scientific questions we have had the ambition to ask.
