Reasoning as Self-Constrained Thinking.
Human Development, v38 n1 p53-64 Jan-Feb 1995
Proposes a theory of reasoning and outlines four general types of reasoning (case-based, law-based, coherence-based, and dialectical) based on the constraints the reasoning seeks to honor. The development of reasoning is presented as a continuing construction and reconstruction of self-constraints and justifications for those constraints, typically in the context of social interaction.
