Briefly discuss some limitations of relying on similarity in constructing and using a cognitive representation space.
Cognitive psychology is based on two assumptions:
1) Human cognition can at least in principle be fully revealed by the scientific method, that is, individual components of mental processes can be identified and understood, and
2) Internal mental processes can be described in terms of rules or algorithms in information processing models.
One of the main criticisms of social-cognitive theory is that it is not a unified theory—that the different aspects of the theory do not tie together to create a cohesive explanation of behavior. Another limitation is that not all social learning can be directly observed.
