How we reason by P. N Johnson-Laird( )

27 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Good reasoning can lead to success; bad reasoning can lead to catastrophe. Yet, it's not obvious how we reason, and why we make mistakes. This book looks at the mental processes that underlie our reasoning. It provides the most accessible account yet of the science of reasoning
The computer and the mind : an introduction to cognitive science by P. N Johnson-Laird( Book )

50 editions published between 1988 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 1,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a field choked with seemingly impenetrable jargon, Philip N. Johnson-Laird has done the impossible: written a book about how the mind works that requires no advance knowledge of artificial intelligence, neurophysiology, or psychology. The mind, he says, depends on the brain in the same way as the execution of a program of symbolic instructions depends on a computer, and can thus be understood by anyone willing to start with basic principles of computation and follow his step-by-step explanations. -- Publisher description
Language and perception by George A Miller( Book )

38 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in 3 languages and held by 1,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mental models : towards a cognitive science of language, inference, and consciousness by P. N Johnson-Laird( Book )

60 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a unified theory of the major propertries of mind, including comprehension, inference, and consciousness. The author argues that we apprehend the world by building inner mental replicas of the relationships among objects and events that concern us. The mind is essentially a model-building device that can itself be modeled on a computer. The book provides a blueprint for building such a model and numberous important illustrations of how to do it

Human and machine thinking by P. N Johnson-Laird( Book )

24 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book aims to reach an understanding of how the mind carries out three sorts of thinking -- deduction, induction, and creation -- to consider what goes right and what goes wrong, and to explore computational models of these sorts of thinking. Written for students of the mind -- psychologists, computer scientists, philosophers, linguists, and other cognitive scientists -- it also provides general readers with a self-contained account of human and machine thinking. The author presents his point of view, rather than a review, as simply as possible so that no technical background is required

22 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study on deduction, the authors argue that people reason by imagining the relevant state of affairs, ie building an internal model of it, formulating a tentative conclusion based on this model and then searching for alternative models

The shape of reason : essays in honour of Paolo Legrenzi by V Girotto( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume draws on both traditional and new topics in reasoning and thinking to provide a wide-ranging survey of human thought. It covers creativity, problem solving, the linguistic and social aspects of reasoning and judgement, and the social and emotional aspects of decision making through telling examples, such as the cognitive mechanisms underlying consumers' attitudes towards herbal medicines. It considers a series of key questions, such as how do individuals who are unfamiliar with logic reason? And how do they make choices if they are unfamiliar with the probability calculus and decision theory?"--Jacket
Mental models in cognitive science : essays in honour of Phil Johnson-Laird by Alan Garnham( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most influential developments in the cognitive sciences in the last 20 years is Phil Johnson-Laird's theory of mental models. This theory aims to provide a detailed account of both reasoning and inference, on the one hand, and language processing on the other. Mental models theory can therefore be regarded as a step toward the much-sought-after unified theory of cognition." "This book, to be published on the occasion of Phil Johnson-Laird's sixtieth birthday, provides an overview of the current state of mental models research. It also reflects Phil's influence on the development of cognitive science at a more personal level. The authors include some of Phil's most distinguished collaborators and the majority of his former graduate students, many of whom are now eminent psychologists in their own right. The book contains contributions from North America, Britain, and the rest of Europe, and covers all the main strands of mental models theory."--BOOK JACKET
