Explicit representations in hypothetical thinking

  • Jonathan St. B. T. Evans (a1) and David E. Over (a2)
    • Published online: 01 October 1999
Abstract

Dienes' & Perner's proposals are discussed in relation to the distinction between explicit and implicit systems of thinking. Evans and Over (1996) propose that explicit processing resources are required for hypothetical thinking, in which mental models of possible world states are constructed. Such thinking requires representations in which the individuals' propositional attitudes including relevant beliefs and goals are made fully explicit.
