Models and Cognition

About the Author

Jonathan A. Waskan is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a member of the Beckman Institute Cognitive Science Group.


“Finally, there is a book that puts explanation in its place: in cognition. Intrinsic Cognitive Models (ICMs) denote the way people understand phenomena by thinking in terms of the mechanisms by which the phenomena may be produced. InModels and Cognition Waskan explores this most promising data.”
Peter Machamer, Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Pittsburgh
“Every now and then a book comes along that tries to put it all together. Waskan’s book is eminently readable and well informed and taught me a lot about stuff I thought I already knew. It is an accessible text and a thoroughly original contribution all in one.”
Robert Cummins, Department of Philosophy and Beckman Institute, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
