Reflection Demystified

Preview

What do we know about the psychological processes which actually take place when human beings engage in reflection? Current views on this matter are presented, focusing on dual process accounts of cognition. By examining the psychological literature on this topic, we are able to see what a demystified view of reflection would amount to, thereby making room for an account of what it is that reflection can and cannot achieve.
