Textbooks - listening to authority
i.e. Santa Claus - we knew he existed
because our parents (authority) tells us
so.
Prior to Cognitive Revolution in the
1950s, everything was based on
BEHAVIOURS.
They asked - what is consciousness?
They study schemas -> a way we
conceptualize something in our heads.

Only pages 1-2 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred.

Deductive reasoning -> top-down.
General -> more specific.
All cognitions are not necessarily
intelligent -> premise is false,
therefore conclusion is false.
Many different versions of deductive
reasoning.
Invalid conclusion to say that some
A's are C's
We choose to believe what we like,
and choose not to believe what we
don't like.
Biases influence the way we think
on an unconscious level.
