Sternberg, Robert J.; And Others
A progress report of work done in formulating a theory of deductive reasoning is given. Models for the three main kinds of syllogisms that have been investigated by students of human reasoning (categorical, conditional, and linear) have been formulated and tested. The theory and data for each of the three kinds of syllogisms is summarized. Some conclusions are drawn and mention is made of the directions in which the current research is going. (MN)
