Structure and Process in Cognition. Workshop Report.
Wexler, Kenneth N.; And Others
Nine papers were presented at a workshop concerned with structure and process in cognition. The reports given at this conference represent detailed applications of these concepts to limited areas of experience. This work is unique in that both structure and process appear together, rather than being studied as independent concepts. All the papers may be interpreted as talking about processes that apply to structure. This represents the beginning of a new kind of work in cognitive psychology. These papers are directly concerned with semantics. This suggests that semantics is providing a setting for further work in cognition. The workshop did not produce any specific conclusions of findings. The interrelations between the structures and processes studied in each of the papers have been worked out. Each paper analyzes a limited range of phenomena. There is not one view which at the moment can cover most of the phenomena. Rather, these papers may be the basis for the future development of an adequate general theory of cognition. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (BW/Author)
