Associated Systems Theory: A Systematic Approach to Cognitive Representations of Persons

By Robert S. Wyer | Go to book overview

CONCLUSION

Carlston has presented an interesting theory about person perception. In the first section, I quibbled a bit about technical details. In the second section, I offered a bit of evidence that indirectly supports his contention that AST is relevant not just to people, but to everything. The third section of my commentary may seem tangential, but it is included as indirect praise of Carlston's theory. One of the best things a good theory can do is generate new and testable hypotheses in the least expectable places.
