George Miller

portrait de George Miller

(United States 1920)

Professor of psychology at Harvard, Rockefeller University and Princeton, Miller was a colleague of Noam Chomsky and Jerome Bruner during the cognitive revolution of the 1950s and 1960s, and is considered as one of the fathers of cognitive psychology. He is credited with shifting the focus of psychological study from behaviour to the mind, and in his pioneering work on processing capacity, published in 1956 as The Magical Number Seven, Miller developed the key concept of chunking.
