But for now I will set all this aside and focus on the question of behavioral economics. Cognitive psychology yields important questions for Human factors psychologists all the way to neuroscientists.

Boden’s (1991, 1994) account of creativity makes the distinction between improbabilistic creativity and impossibilistic creativity. Gauld and Stephenson (1967) found that instructions stressing the need for accurate recall eliminated almost half the errors usually obtained. In economics, this work is more disputed because it seems to be in head-on conflict with models of utility-maximizing rationality from the 1930s-50s associated with the theories of Neumann and others on economic decision making.

In analogical thinking, parallel constraint satisfaction has been used with some success; such methods seem central to analogue retrieval (see Thagard et al. 1990) and are an elegant solution to some aspects of analogical mapping (Holyoak & Thagard, 1989, 1995). For example, as Pickering (1999, p. 127 pointed out, “Parallel models differ,…depending on how many analyses are maintained, what kind of ranking [of analyses] is employed, how long the different analyses are considered for, or whether parallelism is only employed under certain conditions.” We will consider the most influential serial approach (the garden-path model) and the most influential parallel approach (the constraint-based theory of MacDonald, Pearlmutter, and Seidenberg, 1994).
