Abstract:

Many intellectual disciplines contribute to the field of cognitive science psychology, linguistics, anthropology, and artificial intelligence, to name just a few. Cognitive science itself originated in the desire to integrate expertise in these traditionally separate disciplines in order to advance our insight into cognitive phenomena - phenomena like problem solving, decision making, language, memory, and learning. Each discipline has a history of asking certain types of questions and accepting certain types of answers. And that, according to Allen Newell, a founder of the field of artificial intelligence, is both an advantage and a problem.
