    Abstract : How well can we explain natural occurrences of cognitive behaviours given the theoretical frameworks available to us today? The thesis explores what has to be assumed in cognitive theory in order to provide such an explanation, in contrast to being able to predict behaviour under controlled circumstances. The behaviours considered are all of the type described as involving higher level cognition or being representation hungry. READ MORE

  4. 4. Engineering problem solving : The case of the Laplace transform as a difficulty in learning in electric circuits and as a tool to solve real world problems
