SUMMARY

- A refreshing and relevant new theme for composition courses. As the first composition reader to focus on cognition, or the processes of thinking, Mind Readings introduces a fresh trove of material that appeals to students' perennial interest in their own, and others', inner lives. The book invites students to explore irresistible issues like the many "selves" that make up personal identity, the boundary between human and animal intelligence, and the difference between male and female thinking, while introducing them to interdisciplinary inquiry and academic writing. Mind Readings transforms students' explorations of perception, textual analysis, and effective communication into skilled thinking, reading, and writing.- Readings that bridge the gap between the sciences and the humanities. The 53 readings reflect the range of disciplines students will encounter throughout their college careers. Selections from the humanities include 19 personal essays, five scholarly essays, and eight classic works of short fiction by authors such as Ian Frazier, Alice Walker, John Berger, and Maxine Hong Kingston. Thirty selections from a variety of disciplines in the sciences and social sciences include works by Deborah Blum and Daniel L. Schacter. By offering examples of both personal and academic writing within each of its six chapters, Mind Readings invites students to make connections between their own interests and experiences and broader intellectual questions.-Colombo, Gary is the author of 'Mind Readings An Anthology for Writers', published 2001 under ISBN 9780312390822 and ISBN 0312390823.
