BARTLETT, FREDERICK CHARLES (1886–1969) A theorist of human cognition, Bartlett popularised the concept of schema as a basic unit of thought. Bartlett’s childhood was spent in Stow-on-the-Wold, situated about thirty miles from Oxford and eighty-five from London, where his father ran a successful footwear outlet. The local grammar school was defunct, so it was his parents’ intention that he and his older brother should go to boarding school.

Asch was one of the founding members of the Institute for Cognitive Studies at Rutgers University, established in 1966. The Solomon Asch Center of the University of Pennsylvania was created in 1998 with the purpose of advancing training and research in the areas of ethnic group conflict and violence. Much of Asch’s distinctive contribution can be linked to the ideas of his most significant mentor, Max Wertheimer, whom he succeeded at the New School after Wertheimer’s death. It was Wertheimer who introduced Asch to the fundamentals of Gestalt psychology; and it was Asch, along with Lewin, who offered a Gestalt alternative to the then prevailing behavioural explanations of social phenomena.
