Note Preliminary -- Introduction: A Hidden World of Nonformal Expert Reasoning -- Major Processes Involved in Spontaneous Analogical Reasoning -- Methods Experts Use to Generate Analogies -- Methods Experts Use to Evaluate an Analogy Relation -- Expert Methods for Developing an Understanding of the Analogous Case and Applying Findings -- Case Study of Model Construction and Criticism in Expert Reasoning* -- Creativity and Scientific Insight in the Case Study for S2 -- Spontaneous Analogies Generated by Students Solving Science Problems -- Case Study of a Student Who Counters and Improves His Own Misconception by Generating a Chain of Analogies -- Using Analogies and Models in Instruction to Deal with Students' Preconceptions* -- Analogy, Extreme Cases, and Spatial Transformations in Mathematical Problem Solving by Experts -- Depictive Gestures and Other Case Study Evidence for Use of Imagery by Experts and Students -- Physical Intuition, Imagistic Simulation, and Implicit Knowledge -- The Use of Analogies, Imagery, and Thought Experiments in Both Qualitative and Mathematical Model Construction -- Thought Experiments and Imagistic Simulation in Plausible Reasoning -- A Punctuated Evolution Model of Investigation and Model Construction Processes -- Imagistic Processes in Analogical Reasoning: Transformations and Dual Simulations -- How Grounding in Runnable Schemas Contributes to Producing Flexible Scientific Models in Experts and Students -- Summary of Findings on Plausible Reasoning and Learning in Experts I: Basic Findings -- Summary of Findings on Plausible Reasoning and Learning in Experts II: Advanced Topics -- Creativity in Experts, Nonformal Reasoning, and Educational Applications -- Back matter
How do scientists use analogies and other processes to depart from old theories and generate new ones? This book documents such methods through the analysis of video tapes of scientifically trained experts thinking aloud while working on unfamiliar problems
