Abstract:

"The chapters in this volume showcase work that demonstrates how advancements in the field of reasoning rely on integrating findings, theories, and paradigms from the field of memory. This timely book offers an overview of this burgeoning area of research and will be of interest to advanced undergraduates on a wide range of cognitive courses, as well as researchers interested in thinking, reasoning, or decision-making"--

"There is a growing acknowledgement of the importance of integrating the study of reasoning with other areas of cognitive psychology. The purpose of this volume is to examine the extent to which we can further our understanding of reasoning by integrating findings, theories and paradigms in the field of memory. Reasoning as Memory consists of nine chapters that make explicit links between basic memory process, and reasoning and decision-making. The contributors address a number of key topics including: - the relationship between semantic memory and reasoning - the role of expert memory in reasoning - recognition memory and induction - working memory and reasoning - metamemory in reasoning. In addition, the chapters provide broad coverage of the field of thinking, and invite the intriguing question of how much there is left to explain in the field of reasoning when one has extracted the variance due to memory. This book will be of great interest to advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers interested in reasoning or decision making, and to researchers interested in the role played in cognition by a variety of memory processes"--
