Multi‐Process Theories

(p.121) 5 Multi‐Process Theories
Doing without Concepts

Edouard Machery (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter investigates the contours of those theories that assume that a single cognitive competence, for instance, inductive reasoning, is underwritten by several cognitive processes (a branch of theories called here “multi-process theories”). Three types of multi-process theories (including, Ashby's theory of categorization, dual-process theories of reasoning and decision-making, and Gigerenzer's adaptive toolbox) are examined critically. The relevance of dissociations for multi-process theories is discussed.

Keywords:   dual-process theories, adaptive toolbox, dissociations, Gigerenzer, inductive reasoning
