             Subject: Mind and Society

    Humanists with an interest in modelling will be interested in the journal
    Mind and Society: a Journal of Cognitive and Epistemological Studies on
    Economics and Social Sciences, published by the Fondazione Rosselli
    (Torino, http://www.fondazionerosselli.it/). My attention was called to the
    journal by volume 2, number 4 (2001), specifically by the section on
    "Commonsense and Scientific Reasoning". I pass along the table of contents

    >Section on Commonsense and Scientific Reasoning
    >Preface by L. Magnani and N.J. Nersessian 27
    >W.F. Brewer, Models in Science and Mental Models in Scientists and
    >Nonscientists 31
    >This paper examines the form of mental representation of scientific
    >theories in scientists, in nonscientists, and in the philosophy of
    >science. It argues that mental models and perceptual symbols are
    >appropriate forms of mental representation of scientific theories for both
    >scientists and nonscientists.
    >P.H. Miller, Developmental Issues in Model-Based Reasoning during
    >Childhood 49
    >One approach to understanding model-based reasoning in science is to
    >examine how it develops during infancy, childhood, and adolescence. The
    >way in which thinking changes sometimes provides clues to its nature. This
    >paper examines cognitive developmental aspects of modeling practices and
    >discusses how a developmental perspective can enrich the study of
    >model-based scientific reasoning in adults.
    >Z. Marx & I. Dagan, Conceptual Mapping through Keywords Coupled Clustering 59
    >We introduce an automated framework coupled clustering for structure
    >mapping through identification of corresponding themes in unstructured
    >data. The method is demonstrated and evaluated through detecting
    >conceptual correspondences in textual corpora. We also preliminary
    >demonstrate how it could be utilized for identifying relational
    >E. Zibetti, V. Quera, C. Tijus, F. Salvador Beltran, Reasoning Based on
    >Categorization for Interpreting and Acting:
    >A First Approach 87
    >ACACIA is a computer model based on Adaptive Behavior and categorization
    >principles in order to study how artificial agents might be able to reach
    >long term goals without having a predefined and exhaustive a priori action
    >plan such as a schema. Reasoning and decision making are conceptualized as
    >emerging from goal and environment interaction, according to a contextual
    >categorization process.
    >A.H. Goldman, Moral Reasoning without Rules 105
    >This paper defends a requirement of coherence among moral judgments to
    >replace the requirement that they be deduced from rules. We must not judge
    >cases differently without being able to cite relevant differences between
    >them. These must make a difference in other cases, but need not do so in all.

    Note also the forthcoming issue, "Scientific Discovery: Model-based
    Reasoning", whose table of contents is even more promising.
