COGNITION FOR SCIENCE?

Book Review of Giere on Scientific Cognition
University of Hertfordshire &
Hatfield, AL10 9AB, UK
In this review of Giere's Cognitive Models of Science
(1992), underlying theoretical assumptions of cognitive models are
examined from a psychological and philosophical viewpoint. In
particular, the aim of the book to constitute a unified cognitive
model for the sciences is addressed. The ambiguity of cognitive
processes is discussed as a major problem for cognitive
explanations of science theory from a Kantian point of view.
