Eitam, Baruch; Yeshurun, Yaffa; Hassan, Kinneret – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2013
To what degree does our representation of the immediate world depend solely on its relevance to what we are currently doing?

Hein, Christina Judith – Multicultural Education, 2004
The author discerns two trends ruling with many of the teachers, intellectuals, and citizens of the United States.

The…
