Metacognition refers to the awareness individuals have of their own mental processes (also referred to as ' thinking about thinking'). In the past thirty years it has become a significant interdisciplinary area of research in the cognitive sciences. The Foundations of Metacognition is concerned with three particular issues central to the topic of metacognition; do nonhuman animals process the ability to monitor their own mental actions? If metacognitionis unique to humans, then at what stage in development does it occur; how can we distinguish between cognitive and metacognitive processes? This book brings together leading cognitive scientists carrying out work in developmental psychology, animal behaviour, and philosophy, and is intended for students andresearchers in cognitive and developmental psychology, as well as philosophy of mind.
