and the people in it. But, like all of us, his interactions extend beyond the work place. He dedicated Cognitive Psychology to his wife Arden, a constant in Dick's world. As anyone knows who has talked to her or watched Dick interact with her, she has been integral to Dick's work. Dick's dedication reads "for Arden," but it could probably also have read "with Arden."

But the importance of context in thinking is by its nature a two-way affair. Not only has Dick's thinking about psychology benefited from the institutions he has worked at, the students and colleagues he has interacted with, and the people he has shared his most personal and intimate thoughts with, it has also influenced in turn each institution, each student, colleague, and intimate. One of the most extraordinary things about Dick is that not only has he been intellectually sensitive to his surroundings, but that, wherever he has been, he has also created a unique, vibrant world that he has shared, with immense generosity, with others. Every in+00AD stitution he has been part of, every student and colleague he has interacted with, has benefited from his personal and incisive views on psychology. Teachers not only impart information; they encourage ways of approaching a topic, ways of seeing the world, ways of judging quality. Dick's incredibly warm and encompassing embrace of psychology has taught all of us not to see the field through the narrow confines of our specialty. He has encouraged all of us to adopt a critical view, a view from the outside, as it were, informed by the intimate knowledge of an insider. This encouragement, this demand to put research and ideas into as substantial and sizable context as possible, is what makes Dick a truly exceptional figure in psychology. He has given the field a context, a perspective, that will guide our thinking for many years to come. We offer him not only the chapters in this volume but our gratitude.
