Harris, C.L. (in press). Language and cognition. Encyclopedia of Cognitive Science. London: MacMillan.
There is one textbook, Semantic Cognition: A Parallel Distributed Processing Approach (Rogers & McClelland, 2004, MIT Press), to be used during the first part of the class. The remaining readings are articles which can be downloaded from sciencedirect.com or other sites, as noted in the list of readings. You can obtain other texts for your own background reading (see list at next page).

Patricia Churchland, Mindwise. Takes a philosophical perspective: how does cognitive science shed light on classic questions about the mind? ※2
I suggest browsing titles with key words “cognitive science introduction”. The MIT Press bookstore (small shop in Kendall Square) and cognitive science section of Barnes and Nobles are good places for looking at books.
David Lodge, 2001. Thinks: A novel. This novel is attempt to present key issues in cognitive science in the guise of a contemporary love story between two professors, one a humanities instructor and a skeptic of attempts to study consciousness scientifically the other a champion of cognitive science. ※3
If you like the idea of reading fiction to learn about science, I also recommend Richard Power’s Galatea 2.2, 1995. This is easily ordered from amazon.com. ※4
