This book has its source in the question of whether any knowledge engineering tools can be applied or analyzed in cognition research and what insights and methods of cognitive science might be relevant for knowledge engineers.
It presents the proceedings of a workshop organized by the
Special Interest Groups Cognition and Knowledge Engineering of the German Society for Informatics, held in February 1992
in Kaiserslautern.
The book is structured into three parts. The first part contrasts work in knowledge engineering with approaches from the side of the "soft sciences". The second part deals with case-based approaches in expert systems. Cognition research and the cognitive adequacy of expert systems are discussed in the third part. Contributions from Canada, England,
France, Switzerland, and the USA demonstrate how knowledge engineering and cognitive science are woven together internationally.
