Learning outcomes

This course will cover the main contemporary theories of human thinking and reasoning, including perceptual processes, logical and analogical reasoning, and probabilistic reasoning. In addition, it will cover classic research on problem solving and decision making, the mental model theory, as well as heuristics and biases in judgement. By the end of the course students will be able to: - understand the historical framework, in which theories and experimental researches concerning psychology of thinking and reasoning has been developed, also developing a deep comprehension of the psychological constructs in the field, - develop knowledge and comprehension of the terms relating to Decision Making and Problem Solving.
