As a species, we are capable of acts of the most extraordinary kindness and wonder, and those of the most destructive savagery. We are self-conscious and intelligent, able to shape our planet, for good or ill, in ways that no other species can, and capable of sharing a common history and culture through language and writing. How does the human mind enable us to do these things? This chapter provides a brief history of cognitive psychology, before outlining each of the chapters in the book and providing examples of how the discipline helps reveal the human condition.
