Cognitive Decision-Making: Empirical and Foundational Issues

I recently edited a book at Cambridge Scholars Publishing (UK), entitled "Cognitive Decision-Making: Empirical and Foundational Issues". It is based on a conference I organized in Montreal 2 years ago, Cognitio 2005. Papers in philosophy, psychology, biology and neuroscience discuss different dimension of decision-making.
