1 Reseña

This engaging and readable text treats students as active information processors rather than passive responders. Payne and Wenger use high-interest research topics, applied experiments, and student-centered learning tools to present their complex subject matter in a way that encourages students to learn.

  • The text's emphasis on the data/theory relationship enables students to learn not merely the facts, but how facts support or fail to support theories of human cognition.

Sobre el autor (1998)

Despite his youthful appearance, David Payne was in fact born over half a century ago in Leesburg, Florida. As an infant he mewled and puked in his mother's arms. As a schoolboy with shining morning face he crept, snail-like, to school, book satchel in hand, an unwilling scholar. But time changes all, and he eventually battled his way through academia, jealous in honor and quick to quarrel, seeking a reputation in philosophy and ancient literature. He deems himself lucky that he found his way to Petoskey Michigan and North Central Michigan College, where, spectacles on nose, he pipes and whistles to inattentive ears. Now, approaching oblivion (sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything), he immerses himself in abortion research, game theory, and other quandries of the human condition. He loves teaching and writing. He loves mountain biking and skate skiing with his wife. And he basks in the knowledge that his tale, in the end, for all its sound and fury, signifies nothing.

Shunryu Suzuki Roshi came to the United States in 1959, leaving his temple in Yaizu, Japan, to serve as priest for the Japanese American congregation at Sokoji Temple in San Francisco. In 1967 he and his students created the first Zen Buddhist monastery in America at Tassajara in the coastal mountains south of San Francisco. Suzuki Roshi died in 1971 at age 67, a year and a half after delivering his teaching on the "Sandokai". He may have had a premonition of his coming death when he said that it was common for Zen teachers in the Soto tradition to lecture on the "Sandokai" near the end of life.Mel Weitsman is the former abbot of the San Francisco Zen Center and current abbot of the Berkeley Zen Center. Michael Wenger is Dean of Buddhist Studies at the San Francisco Zen Center.
