The theory of information integration provides a unified, general approach to the three disciplines of cognitive, social, and developmental psychology. Each of these volumes illustrates how the concepts and methods of this experimentally-grounded theory may be productively applied to core problems in one of these three disciplines.

"The scope, depth, refined statistical and methodological sophistication, penetrating critiques, and systematic development and extension of information integration theory and functional measurement that have made Norman Anderson a giant of our time are displayed once again in this book....no one since Piaget has approached so diverse a collection of important areas of psychology and brought such an integrated perspective that unites and illuminates them all....The book is rich in ideas and provides a powerful alternative to the prevailing approaches in developmental psychology....What we have here is an important contribution to developmental psychology."
