GROUNDING SOCIAL SCIENCES IN COGNITIVE SCIENCES, Chapter 14. pp. 387-414, Ron Sun, ed., Cambridge MA: MIT Press, 2012
This chapter is an attempt to provide a few examples of the ways in which routine methods of cognitive science could be applied to improve social scientific investigations concerned with judgment, decision, reason, and choice. Since judgment, decision, reason, and choice are cognitive and conceptual operations, these foundations should draw as much as possible on the best research from cognitive science.
