MIT Press’ Most Influential Publications, 1926–Present

When physicist Max Born visited in 1926, the Institute published his lectures under its own imprint. That exercise initiated MIT book publishing efforts that accelerated in 1962 with the formation of the MIT Press, an independent publishing house focusing strongly, but not exclusively, on science and technology. The MIT Press has published more than 9,000 titles, known both for their breadth and depth of intellectual coverage and for their striking design and production. Many of the MIT Press’s books have become the defining texts in their fields. In some cases, such as Michael Gazzaniga’s classic reference, The Cognitive Neurosciences, they have been instrumental in moving the discipline forward. Tucked inside a custom bookcase that captures Muriel Cooper’s famous colophon is a collection of 30 influential works that remind us that the MIT Press has provided a key platform for shaping entire disciplines and discourses far beyond the campus.

The MIT Press generously provided the books and journals featured in this display.
