This chapter aims to reflect on themes and points of difference raised in the book; consider relationships between this work and broader developments in the cognitive sciences; and to give some personal views concerning possible future directions for the field. It draws out themes which discuss: the meaning of rational analysis; whether probability is what the brain is computing; the relation between models of ‘low-high’ and ‘high-level’ cognition; and the relation of probability to traditional concepts in cognitive science namely, logic and structured mental representations.

Keywords:   cognitive science, rational analysis, probability, cognition, logic, structured mental representations
