The Life and Contributions of Neville Moray
This paper seeks, albeit incompletely, to provide a descriptive overview of the life and science of Neville Peter Moray. From his earliest contributions to the very foundations of cognitive psychology to his final works upon the ultimate purpose of humankind, he illuminated half a century of human knowledge with his erudition, his curiosity, and his manifest joie de vivre. The litany of his academic achievement is here leavened by some personal reflections of the character and influence of this unique scholar.
