Based on your readings, discuss the simplicity of a model vs. its explanatory power. Which contributes most to a “good” theory? For example, is AESOP a good theory? Similarly, discuss whether Morgan’s Canon is still a force in the field. For instance, Mackintosh, as well as Pearce and Hall, added attention to the mix. Was it necessary? Did theorists give up too easily before adding a new process? How do changes in attention fare as an explanation for latent inhibition, for example, compared to Wagner’s ideas of CS surprisingness?
