(p.133) Chapter 4 Calculating, Reasoning, and “Doing Things with the Mind”
Inside Man
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on the models of human reasoning and the process of calculation. It explains that these models are based on the structure of the problems which a subject can attempt to solve and on a “pico-economics” of thinking, and discusses the mental economics of simple calculations and the computational complexity of being-in-the-world. The chapter also suggests that these models can be used to represent the basic processes by which the subject reasons, perceives, and infers.

Keywords:   models, human reasoning, calculation, pico-economics, mental economics, computational complexity
