Induction, Concept Combination, and Neuropsychology
This chapter considers additional evidence for the Heterogeneity Hypothesis. It focuses on the research on inductive reasoning and concept combination. Particularly, it establishes that people have several distinct processes, involving distinct kinds of concepts, for reasoning inductively. Findings from the growing field of the neuropsychology of concepts (including the noted work of Larry Squire and Barbara Knowlton on amnesic patients) are also critically assessed.
