Abstract

In this review of Giere's Cognitive Models of Science (1992), underlying theoretical assumptions of cognitive models are examined from a psychological and philosophical viewpoint. In particular, the aim of the book to constitute a unified cognitive model for the sciences is addressed. The ambiguity of cognitive processes is discussed as a major problem for cognitive explanations of science theory from a Kantian point of view.
