Title: The Cognitive Processes Underlying Complex Analogies: Theoretical and Empirical Advances
Author: Keane, Mark T.
Keywords: Computer Science
Issue Date: Oct-1993

Citation: Keane, Mark T.. 'The Cognitive Processes Underlying Complex Analogies: Theoretical and Empirical Advances'. - Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, TCD-CS-93-25, 1993, pp31
Series/Report no.: Computer Science Technical Report
Abstract: The psychological investigation of complex analogies (like the solar system / atom analogy) began in the late 1970s and in the intervening period has grown into a prototypical, area of Cognitive Science research. During this time the investigation of complex analogies have gone from rough general notions to detailed computational models. This paper traces the theoretical and empirical development in the area and plots the major advances which have occurred. Apart from reviewing the literature, the main aim of the paper is to present this area as a template for the development of other Cognitive Science research topics. Thus, it should have important implications for the methodology of modern research in Cognitive Psychology. Finally, some outstanding problems in the area and likely directions for future research are considered.
