Abstract

Thinking is a process of making sense of experience. It does so by resolving two questions: What is it? and How does it work?
A general framework for understanding these two issues will be followed by a more specific consideration of how thinking goes astray in problem solving and decision making. Cognitive styles will be discussed if time permits.
