Abstract

Stanovich and West's dual-system proposals represent a major development in an understanding of reasoning and rationality. We feel, however, that they their notion of System-1 functioning as a computational escape hatch during the processing of complex tasks may deserve a more central role in explanations of reasoning performance. We describe examples of apparent escape-hatch processing from the reasoning and judgement literature.
