Interview with Keith Stenning in The Reasoner

(Cross-posted at NewAPPS)

The latest issue of The Reasoner is out, and among other interesting features, it has an interview with the cognitive scientist Keith Stenning, conducted by me. Keith is (in my opinion) the sharpest, most interesting researcher currently working on reasoning, so everyone should be thoroughly familiar with his work! He has two fairly recent can't-miss books, Seeing Reason and (with Michiel van Lambalgen) Human Reasoning and Cognitive Science. In the interview, he talks about the status of cognitive science and psychology as disciplines, his interdisciplinary professional trajectory, and his recent collaboration with Michiel van Lambalgen tracking down the inherent component of defeasibility in human reasoning.

 Do check it out if reasoning is one of your hobby horses!
