Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(2), 135–137. Reviews the book, Mathematical Psychology: Current Developments edited by Jean-Paul Doignon and Jean-Claude Falmagne (1991). This book contains selected contributions of the 20th European meeting of mathematical psychologists at the University of Nijmegen in 1989. Jean-Claude Falmagne, one of the editors of this volume, started the tradition of European mathematical psychology meetings in 1971. These meetings quickly became a major event in this field, attracting not only mathematical psychologists from Europe but also their colleagues from overseas. A laudable feature of this volume is the very thorough Subject Index. Because most of the 23 chapters either report research in progress or present summaries of previous work, this volume provides an informative and broad sample of current topics of interest in mathematical psychology. In conclusion, it is a useful book that deserves wide and serious attention. Given the remarkable diversity of the research topics and the generally high quality of the contributions, this volume should be of particular interest to researchers who like to stay informed about the latest developments in mathematical psychology.
