An Introduction to Mental Models | Farnam Street   1 comment

Our world view and processing of facts and data get cobbled together in models in our mind. The following article helps us to understand what mental models are and how they fit into the Logic paradigm….

“The Cambridge Handbook of Thinking and Reasoning:

How do we think? One answer is that we rely on mental models. Perception yields models of the world that lie outside us. An understanding of discourse yields models of the world that the speaker describes to us. Thinking, which enables us to anticipate the world and to choose a course of action, relies on internal manipulations of these mental models.
