University of Minnesota

They've done it for novels, movies, and who knows what else!
And now we ask for your help in compiling a list of the 100
most influential works in cognitive science from the 20th
century. We'll accept and list nominations on our web site


until mid-December 1999. Then an esteemed panel of experts will
evaluate the nominations and arrive at a rank-ordered lis
of the top 100 entries. In January 2000, we'll post this
"Top 100" for the world to admire and grumble abou
(assuming our web server is Y2K compliant). Then, we'll all
have our reading set for the 21st century!

Please have a look at our growing list. Is your favorite
book or article there? Contribute a nomination, or add a
comment, pro or con, to an existing nomination. Come back
