Alternative task construals, computational escape hatches, and dual-system theories of reasoning

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (5):667-668 (2000)
Stanovich & West's dual-system represents a major development in an understanding of reasoning and rationality. Their notion of System 1 functioning as a computational escape hatch during the processing of complex tasks may deserve a more central role in explanations of reasoning performance. We describe examples of apparent escape-hatch processing from the reasoning and judgement literature.
