This chapter analyses developments in cognitive science during the past fifty years from a personal perspective. It describes psychology issues and topics that were of personal interest to the author of this chapter. These include a paper titled 'A logical calculus of the ideas immanent in nervous activity' and Donald Broadbent's Perception and Communication, which not only used flowcharts to express models of cognition but also made a clear and explicit statement of cognitive science as abstracting computational procedures from the physical systems that implement them.
