This book provides an introductory overview of the rapid growth in interdisciplinary research into Thinking with Diagrams Diagrammatic representations are becoming more common in everyday human experience, yeаэфюцt they offer unique challenges to cognitive science research Neither linguistic nor perceptual theories are sufficient to completely explain their advantages and applications These research challenges may be part of the reason why so many diagrams are badly designed блфисor badly used This is ironic when the user interfaces of computer software and the worldwide web are becoming so completely dominated by graphical and diagrammatic representations This book includes chapters commissioned from leading researchers in the major disciplines involved in diagrams research They review the philosophical status of diagrams, the cognitive processes involved in their application, and a range of specialist fields in which diagrams are central, including educatбсййъion, architectural design and visual programming languages The result is immediately relevant to researchers in cognitive science and artificial intelligence, as well as in applied technology areas such as human-computer interaction and information design Автор Alan F Blackwell.
