At Play in the Fields of Consciousness Essays in Honor of Jerome L. Singer
This book provides a state-of-the-art look at the study of consciousness, which is in the midst of a great renaissance. While honoring Jerome Singer's impressive career, it demonstrates the broad and integrative influence the study of consciousness has across a variety of subdisciplines of psychology--experimental, personality, developmental, social, and clinical. The contributors are pioneers in the study of consciousness and contemporary researchers. This volume is a landmark statement about psychology's understanding of the role of consciousness in affective and cognitive processes, the development of imagination in children, and its application to the practice of psychotherapy.
"The pioneering aspects of Singer's work are remarkable. So is the breadth and influence of his thinking. It is about time that a Festschrift dedicated to him made its appearance. This book, At Play in the Fields of Consciousness, edited by his son Jefferson and his protégé Peter Salovey, is suitably titled and appropriately represents Singer's influence....this book represents a fitting tribute to Jerome L. Singer and provides some good reading besides."
