Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(11), 1238. Reviews the book, The Mind's We: Contextualism in Cognitive Psychology by Diane Gillespie (1992). Gillespie asserts that contextualism has become a persuasive theoretical alternative in cognitive psychology and contrasts it to prevalent mechanistic theories that have dominated the field in the past decade. She provides an overview of current research and theory about mechanism and contextualism and updates Pepper's descriptions of contextualism into present day formulations.
