Cognitive Engineering: Toward a Workable Concept of Mind

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This book takes steps toward building what Jerome Bruner referred to as a "workable concept of mind". It specifically reports the methods and models that can be fruitfully applied to solving practically relevant problems in human-technology interaction. Six themes unite the chapters' orientation toward developing a concept of mind that is both workable and valuable from a cognitive engineering perspective. These themes are illustrated in the selection of research problems, methods, and analysis and modeling techniques in the following chapters. Specifically discussed in this chapter are the discussions given on an ecological or systems perspective, an adaptive, functional perspective, environmental uncertainty, representativeness, formal perspective, and problem-solving perspective.
