This book has several aims. First, it intends to be an introduction to Cognitive Science (CS). In this sense, its target reader would be a student who wants to know and understand the background of this field, or better of its specific subdisciplines. In fact, the author examines in detail the contribution that different disciplines offer to the general enterprise of CS: epistemology, cognitive psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, artificial intelligence. Even ethnoscience and ethology (rarely mentioned in this context) are considered in some chapters in the book. The book's introductory character is manifest as concepts are extensively explained, and there are glossaries for difficult terms.
