Inhaltsangabe: Psychology of Time will provide cutting-edge presentations on the main theoretical and empirical issues in the fascinating and rapidly expanding field of time perception and psychological time. Chapters explore what is currently known in the field and what avenues remain to be explored. It is important to understand that the field has been growing very quickly over the past 10 years.
As it stands now, the volume would focus on, but not be restricted to, the main theories and findings that experimental psychology has provided on the questions of psychological time and timing mechanisms. A very important feature of the book is that its chapters would be written by world-renowned experts in their respective fields. Contributors have been selected for their ability to address certain specific questions, with a view to ensuring the volume will form a coherent whole.
As indicated by the range of the contributors? affiliations (below), the book would be designed to reach a world-wide audience. Psychologists and psychology students, especially those who are drawn to cognitive science, would be the most likely to take an interest in the book. Students in philosophy and neuroscience should also find it useful and informative. In fact, it would probably attract a large number and variety of readers with an interest in the question of time.
The book would contain 14 or 15 chapters of roughly 12 000 words. The exact final number of chapters would depend on further discussions with you about the book's basic structure. Ten chapters, signed by authors who have made a firm commitment, have already been planned. It should be noted that many of these authors have expressed a great deal of enthusiasm about the project and the possibility of contributing to it.
According to its proposed structure, the book would first offer readers several chapters that would address questions related to a small temporal scale, while emphasizing the role of attention, various psychophysical issues and findings, and some specific sensory modality issues (Brown; Eisler & al.; Nakajima & ten Hoopen). The book would then provide information on the most recent advances in the study of timing and time perception in neuroscience (Rammsayer; Pouthas & Macar; Spencer & al.). Finally, four or five chapters would be dedicated to questions that involve a large temporal scale: memory of the past, as demonstrated by animals and humans, and the ability to anticipate the future (Roberts; Friedman; Zakay & Block), and a review of the main questions relating to time and causality in physics (Lobo).
