Readings

This section lists the Required Texts and the Assigned Readings.
Texts
Gray, Peter. Psychology, 3rd ed. Required.

Pinker, Steven. How the Mind Works. New York: W. W. Norton, 1997. Much of the lecture material that is not in Psychology may be found in this book. It is therefore recommended.

Pinker, Steven. The Language Instinct. New York: HarperCollins, 1994. Recommended as backup for the lectures on language. Selected chapters will be put on reserve.
