Newell’s argument leaves open the question of how much of human cognition involves symbols, because much of human cognition does not involve unbounded use of knowledge. Given that the algorithm level is tied to symbols, it is the level at which Pylyshyn’s principle of cognitive penetrability applies. It is here that knowledge is brought to bear with full force and so can influence cognition. In addition to cognitive penetrability, my conception of the algorithm level is distinguished by the fact that steps of cognition at the algorithm level are correlated with observable behaviors.

Is there a higher level where we should begin our inquiry, as Marr and Chomsky have advocated? As indicated in Table 1-1, I think there is a higher level, called the rational level, which is close in character to Marr’s computational level. This book is mainly devoted to developing theory at the rational level, although it contains some speculations about how this relates to issues at other levels. The rational level of analysis offers a different cut at human behavior. It is not an attempt to propose an information-processing analysis of mind at some level of aggregation from the molecular to the behavioral.

It is possible that humans are rational in the adaptive sense in the domains of cognition studied here but not in decision making and social judgment. However, in this section, I argue that many of the purported demonstrations of human irrationality are demonstrations in the normative sense and not the adaptive sense. I enumerate in the following subsections some of the ways in which criteria of normative rationality can deviate from criteria of adaptive rationality. Copyrighted Material 32 1. INTRODUCTION Computational Cost One problem with normative definitions of rationality is that they ignore computational cost.
