Example text

1995; Siegler, 1996). In the realm of advanced cognition, we are each a multitude. To simplify, however, we process at no fewer than two levels. Dual processing theories are compatible with common conceptions of Piaget’s theory of formal operations as a competence theory (Overton, 1990; see Chapter 1). Deliberate application of logical norms does not replace earlier modes of functioning but rather supplements them. Given Piaget’s concern with development, it is reasonable that he focused especially on formal and analytic processes, which show important developmental change.

Research on the development of thinking (Kuhn, 2009) Inference, Thinking, and Reasoning ■ 25 has concerned itself with the development of problem solving (DeLoache, Miller, & Pierroutsakos, 1998), decision making (Baron & Brown, 1991; Byrnes, 1998, 2005; Galotti, 2002; Jacobs & Klaczynski, 2005; Klaczynski, Byrnes, & Jacobs, 2001; Umeh, 2009), judgment (Jacobs & Klaczynski, 2005; Kahneman, 2003; Millstein & Halpern-Felsher, 2002), and planning (Galotti, 2005; Scholnick & Friedman, 1993). Decision making has been an area of particular concern with regard to adolescents, in part because of its perceived link to risky behavior (Beyth-Marom, Austin, Fischhoff, Palmgren, & JacobsQuadrel, 1993; Michels, Kropp, Eyre, & Halpern-Felsher, 2005; Reyna, Adam, Poirier, LeCroy, & Brainerd, 2005; Reyna & Farley, 2006; Van Leijenhorst & Crone, 2010; see Chapter 16).

Total awareness and control, however, not only is unachievable but would surely be maladaptive. Given the information processing limitations of the human mind, automatic inferences permit efficient functioning in complex environments (Moors & De Houwer, 2006). The development of thinking and reasoning, to which we now turn, supplements automatic systems of inference but does not replace them. Automatic inference remains, throughout life, a ubiquitous aspect of cognitive functioning. Thinking as Purposeful Inference Thinking may be defined as the deliberate application and coordination of one’s inferences to serve one’s purposes (Moshman, 1995a).
