Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dedre Gentner is a professor in the Department of Psychology at Northwestern University. She is a prominent researcher in the study of analogical reasoning. Her work on structure-mapping theory was foundational for the development of the structure mapping engine by Ken Forbus. She also coined the kind world hypothesis, claiming that superficial properties usually tell a lot about the structural features of the object: "If something looks like a tiger, it probably is a tiger."The Analogical Mind: Perspectives from Cognitive Science by Dedre Gentner (Editor), Keith J.
