Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 459–461. Reviews the book, Cognition and Instruction by David Klahr (Ed.) (1976). This book is one of a growing number of edited volumes that contain papers describing the applications of cognitive research to a wide range of educational issues. Much of the work described is very schematic although quite provocative, and thus, we should view the work described here as an auspicious beginning for the development of a rational theory of instruction. The papers vary widely in quality with a large majority of them being very good to excellent. The papers in this volume, demonstrate the diversity and vigor of modern cognitive psychology and present a very promising start in the long and rewarding task of developing a rational theory of instruction.
