Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 14)


After Professor Butterfield’s talk, there is no need to elaborate further on the usefulness of process theories. Such theories seem to reflect the spirit of the time. What is slightly alarming though, is the rate of proliferation of concepts of processes. Thus, there is a need to delineate clearly the distinctiveness of processes within various models. Models of cognitive processes should be similarly described so that the consumer can determine what is new in the product.
