Computer Science Technical Report TCD-CS-93-25
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.
