At Play in the Fields of Consciousness: Essays in Honor of Jerome L. Singer


The primary purpose of this book is to provide a state-of-the-art look at the study of consciousness, which is in the midst of a great renaissance. While honoring Jerome Singer's impressive career in psychology, this volume demonstrates the broad and integrative influence the study of consciousness is having across a variety of subdisciplines of psychology--experimental, personality, developmental, social, and clinical. The contributors to this volume represent both pioneers in the study of consciousness and contemporary researchers whose work has followed in the spirit of their predecessors' seminal work. This book will serve as a landmark end-of-the-century statement about psychology's understanding of the role of consciousness in affective and cognitive processes, the development of imagination in children, and its application to the practice of psychotherapy.
