2). Clearly, in the abstract, this general class of models has a great number of degrees of freedom to describe results. , Baker, 1976; however, see Papini & Bitterman, 1990). Some cognitive systems may use a normative algorithm, still others may use an associative algorithm. We do wish to take issue with any possible claim that the two theories are mutually exclusive even within individual judgment systems Associative and Normative Models of Cause 37 such as classical fear conditioning in rats or human causality judgments.

We can intuitively narrow down the alternatives. Clearly, highly verbal human behavior such as scientific reasoning involves much data accumulation and mental computation and involves causal models, as does much other human behavior. Furthermore, although conditioning systems in other animals react to cause, many of them do not have causal models or accurate representations of covariation (see Dickinson & Shanks, 1995). However, even in the absence of positive tests we can never know that these models do not exist in these simple systems.

368) This one quotation shows that, at least at that time: they were not specifying their model as an algorithm; they seem to think that one normative mechanism is appropriate to a wide range of systems both within and between species; and, finally, they might not wish to distinguish between sensitivity to a cause and understanding a cause. ” (Waldmann and Holyoak, 1992, p. 234). Do they mean all learned behavior follows these rules? Do only some systems follow these rules and other systems other rules?
