The goal of Cognitive Models of Science (1992) is to
demonstrate the ways in which the field of Cognitive Science is
becoming a resource for Philosophy of Science. However, it fails to
provide a framework for understanding much of the potentially
relevant work in Cognitive Science. In this review, I suggest one
such framework, and provide a "reader's guide" to the work in
cognitive psychology that directly addresses questions about the
psychology of science.
