A shortcoming of the text has to do with the relationship between Von Eckardt's chapter and the following contribution from Thagard on cognitive architectures.
Hogan further identifies three main sorts of cognitive architectures used by cognitive scientists--representational, connectionist, and neurobiological--and one "metalevel" of analysis (34), evolutionary theory, that attempts to integrate the various hypothesized structures and processes into a coherent phylogenetic account.
Hogan's interpretive framework is quite helpful here, as he shows that elements of Fauconnier and Turner's theory are predicted by certain characteristics of cognitive architecture like working memory.
Conversely, the cognitive science paradigm, which focuses on information processing, cognitive architectures, memory, and decision-making, is more clearly representative of contemporary cognitive psychology.

Swarts examines the mediation provided by information technology in writing review, compares how people in writing professions and those not typically associated with writing learn to become practicing writers, and considers what can be learned about the cognitive architectures that support writing review.
