Part of the Path in Psychology book series (PATH)


At the outset, we presented the four levels of description required to analyze how people are able to understand or invent procedures, such as the basic algorithm. These levels are specific formulation, general algorithm, anticipatory schema, and operational structure. Part I was mainly devoted to the outermost two levels. In this second part, we will study the two inner levels, anticipatory schemata, and operational structures. Our data will come from experiments with children, which will be presented in detail in the following chapters.
