The false dichotomy of domain-specific versus domain-general cognition

Research output: Contribution to journalDebate/Note/Editorial

Abstract

The qualitative division between domain-general and domain-specific
cognition is unsubstantiated. The distinction is instead better
viewed as opposites on a gradual scale, which has more explanatory
power and fits current empirical evidence better. We also argue that
causal cognition may be more general than social learning, which it
often involves.
