This collection of essays focuses on three reasoning problems
devised by Peter Wason - the selection task, the 2-4-6 task, and
the THOG problem - which have had a considerable influence since
their invention.; The reasons why people make so many errors in
these seemingly simple tasks are still not fully understood. A
variety of different theoretical perspectives have been used in
trying to explain performance. These include the mental models
approach, the pragmatic reasoning approach, and the mental logic
approach. This book contains chapters which discuss all these
theories. Other chapters review the literature or offer alternative
theoretical perspectives. A final chapter by Peter Wason describes
how he came to create the tasks discussed.
