Ten Classics from Cognitive Science
The editorial board of Cognitive Science has identified several classic articles that appeared in our journal over the last couple of decades. With the permission of the Cognitive Science Society, the full text for these articles is available here. Members of our editorial board have also provided descriptions for why these articles were selected as classics. Although many other articles could have been selected and may be added in future lists, these articles were chosen because of their impact, innovation, and importance in furthering theoretical development in the field of cognitive science.
