Concept Formulation, Part II: Measurement of Formulation Processes. Cognitive Science Research No. 11.
Bierschenk, Bernhard; Bierschenk, Inger
The second of three articles on the ways in which people formulate their observations, this paper begins with a discussion of the assumptions underlying analytical and class-based models of cognition. The analytical approach to the measurement of cognition is found to be inappropriate because human cognition, and consequently language processing is characterized by the ability to synthesize information. Its measurement requires an instrument that can schematize both intention and orientation. The article ends by proposing a system of identification, process, and supplementation rules for language processing based on the assumptions underlying the process of synthesis. (MSE)
