Miller, G. The psychology of communication
George A. Miller. The psychology of communication; seven essays
The seven essays in this book range from cybernetics and automation to psycholinguistics, but underneath there is a persistent concern with common subject: man as an information-processing and information-gathering system.
“Most of these essays deal explicitly with psychological aspects of communication. Some reflect a communicative concern less directly. Memory, for example, is a communication from the past to the future, and the channel it travels from source to destination is often the human nervous system; the problem is to encode the message in such a way as to resist the ubiquitous noise that this channel introduces…And the concern with computers – a computer is simply the most general possible case of an information-processing system, one that can transform the information in any describable manner before passing in on.” – From the author's Preface
