Computational cognitive modeling has profoundly changed the ways in which we understand cognition. Empirical research has progressed as well, offering new insights into many psychological phenomena. This book investigates the possibility of exploiting the successes of the cognitive sciences to establish a better foundation for the social sciences, including the disciplines of sociology, anthropology, economics, and political science.

The result may be a new, powerful, integrative intellectual enterprise: the cognitive social sciences. The book treats a range of topics selected to capture issues that arise across the social sciences, covering computational, empirical, and theoretical approaches. The chapters, by leading scholars in both the cognitive and the social sciences, explore the relationship between cognition and society, including such issues as methodologies of studying cultural differences- the psychological basis of politics (for instance, the role of emotion and the psychology of moral choices)- cognitive dimensions of religion- cognitive approaches to economics- meta-theoretical questions on the possibility of the unification of social and cognitive sciences.

Combining depth and breadth, the book encourages fruitful interdisciplinary interaction across many fields.
