This is an auction for THE OXFORD COMPANION TO THE MIND, edited by Richard L Gregory.

"Neuropsychologist Gregory has assembled an ambitious reference with more than 1000 entries on every aspect of brain and mind science. A distinguished lineup of contributors picks up the gauntlet and succeeds in capturing what it is we know about the human mind. Anxiety and Artificial intelligence, Depression and Dreaming, Face-to-face communication and Feedback and feedforward, Metaphor and Metaphysics, and Time-gap memory and Truth--such pairings demonstrate the reach of this reference, which ranges across neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology. There is no question but that it is unparalleled in its ambition, scope, and the overall quality of its entries; as such it succeeds in offering professionals, students, and general adult readers a unique resource."
- Booklist (US) review:

"A field of 216 contributors filled this tome with savory items from Abacus to Zeno of Elea. In between there are 819 pages of 1001 entries, all in some way expanding our understanding of psychology, philosophy and the physiology of the brain. Like all excellent references, you could easily, happily get lost perusing, but it also happens to be excellently well indexed. Been wondering about the hippocampus or Thomas Hobbes, introversion or tautologies? Wonder no more, or at least wonder with more acumen."
