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

By Robert S. Wyer | Go to book overview

make interesting points, and we appreciate their thoughtful and helpful attention to the nuances of this complex model.

We began this chapter with the tale about the three blind men who took hold of different parts of an elephant and then could not agree about the nature of the beast they were holding. One underemphasized implication of this story is that, by comparing and contrasting their different perspectives, the three blind men could have arrived at a much clearer conception of the elephant, which none could fully apprehend by himself. Perhaps combining all of the different viewpoints in this volume will also help readers to see things a little more clearly.
