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

By Robert S. Wyer | Go to book overview

Recognition of this fact does not diminish the ultimate importance of AST as a powerful conceptual tool. The many phenomena that Carlston has already been able to conceptualize within the framework of the theory testify to its potential value. Moreover, there is little doubt that once the theory becomes more fully developed, many of the questions I have raised in this commentary will be answered and the ambiguities identified will be eliminated. Once this is done, the model will be a major conceptual advance in our understanding of impression-formation phenomena that can be applied effectively both in and out of the laboratory. I look forward eagerly to the attainment of this objective.
