The Probability Heuristics Model of Syllogistic Reasoning.
Chater, Nick; Oaksford, Mike
Cognitive Psychology, v38 n2 p191-258 Mar 1999
Proposes a probability heuristic model for syllogistic reasoning and confirms the rationality of this heuristic by an analysis of the probabilistic validity of syllogistic reasoning that treats logical inference as a limiting case of probabilistic inference. Meta-analysis and two experiments involving 40 adult participants and using generalized quantifiers support the model.(SLD)
