This series brings together related journal content into e-book format, allowing the reader to experience several thematically-related scholarly articles at one time. This innovative new series aims to gather hand-selected material by leading scholars in an easy-to-digest format that will appeal to a wider audience than before.
Our first e-book in this series, Higher Mental Processes, was curated by Robert W. Proctor, editor of The American Journal of Psychology. The idea for this collection originated with an article by R .A. Carlson that was featured in the 125th anniversary issue of the Journal. Starting with this piece, which categorizes processes of higher-order thinking, Proctor added nine related articles from different issues throughout the Journal’s history that complemented the theme and resulted in a ten article e-book with a special introduction from the editor.
Look for future Common Threads from our other titles!
