Reasoning strategies in syllogisms: Evidence for performance errors along with computational limitations
Graduate studies at Western
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (5):669-670 (2000)
|Abstract||Stanovich & West interpret errors in syllogistic reasoning in terms of computational limitations. I argue that the variety of strategies used by reasoners in solving syllogisms requires us to consider also performance errors. Although reasoners' performance from one trial to another is quite consistent, it can be different, in line with the definition of performance errors. My argument has methodological implications for reasoning theories.|
