Mindvaults is an engaging exercise in armchair philosophizing about the nature of the human intellect. Bodgan’s scope of scholarship is broad, and his thinking is in line with the latest trends in evolutionary psychology and cognitive development. His arguments are cogent and refreshingly different clearly the product of a rich imagination. This little book is packed full of new ideas for research, and it should definitely be on the summer reading list for all developmental scientists.—David Ludden, PsycCRITIQUES—
An important contribution to modern psychology in its emphasis on imagination as central to human cognition….Bogdan’s detailed consideration of the topic is a welcome addition to the literature….Mindvaults presents a host of ideas and hypotheses about the development of imagination that provide ample fodder for scholars.
