Authors: Darren J. Edwards (Department of Psychology, Swansea University, Singleton Park, UK) 
Book Description:
This book has been written for a wide audience, from an undergraduate and layperson audience looking to explore the history and development of cognitive and behavioral psychology, to experts in the area interested in the integration of modern behavioral and cognitive psychology. Chapter 1 offers a very basic overview of how psychology developed as a science from its historic philosophical beginnings in ancient Greece to where it is today where cognitive psychology dominates the subject. Chapter 2 goes on further to explore the rise of behaviorism as psychology entered into the realm of scientific methodology and then explains its fall, with the rise of cognitive psychology and the advent of Chomskyís universal generative grammar. Chapter 3 follows on from this by explaining the development of Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and how this was the first serious attempt in psychology to integrate cognitive and behavioral theories into a unified model for clinical practice. Chapter 3 also compares and contrasts with another up-and-coming cognitive-behavioral model; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and its Relational Frame Theory (RFT) mechanistic underpinnings. RFT is described in the context of refuting some of Chomskyís most damaging criticisms towards Skinnerís (behaviorism) Verbal Behavior (i.e., universal generative grammar) which still to this day has not been adequately refuted by the behavioral community. RFT is offered as a potentially more acceptable and progressive model towards a universally integrated cognitive-behavioral model. Chapter 4 starts by explaining the basics of cognitive psychology, and the extension of Chomskyís work in the form of categorization. A complete model of cognitive psychology is not given but the major components of the cognitive discipline, categorization is. Chapterís 5, 6 and 7 then give a much more specific account of three areas within categorization work with considerable detail and simpler accounts are also provided for those without a mathematical modelling background. Though the intention here is not to intimidate the reader with complex math, it is provided here to give the reader an idea into how complex some of these mathematical models are and what are categorization modellers focusing on today. Chapter 8 ends the book by bringing together many elements of categorization theories and behavioral theories to demonstrate great commonalities between these subjects and the nature of some of the dichotomy in the language used when describing these. Several examples are provided which indicate that through a more moderate and less radical perspective of these two subjects, then they are completely compatible and cognitive and behavioral words can be used interchangeably. As a final thought, some explanation is then given which explains the advantages of further integrative work in the future. I hope this book enlightens your thinking about the many similarities between cognitive and behavioral psychology. (Imprint: Novinka)
