Hypertext and Cognition - Paperback

1996, ISBN: 9780805821444

Hardcover, ID: 657518402

Center for the Study of Language and Inf. Used - Good. Shows some signs of wear, and may have some markings on the inside., Center for the Study of Language and Inf, Pragati Publication, 1994. First edition. Hardcover. New. Understanding Vagueness provides a comprehensive analysis of philosophical and logical issues centering around vagueness. The main aim of the book is to develop an alternative logic for vague sentences of natural language and to offer a solution to the age-old Sorites Paradox. The author has drawn attention to various different perspectives from which the problem area has been studied, viz., philosophical, mathematical, semantic, of Al but has placed the problems within a much wider context The book also contains an introduction to Fuzzy Logic, Logic of Supervaluation and Non-Monotonic Reasoning, especially, Circumscription. Researchers, advanced scholars, and even graduate students in the fields of Philosophy, Mathematics, Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence will be benefited by the work. Contents:- Preface I. VARIETIES OF VAGUENESS : 1. Introduction 2. Definition 3. Vagueness and Imprecision 4. Is Vagueness Subjective? 5. Are all Expressions Vague? 6. Different Types of Vague Expressions 7.

Condition fair, pages clean, exlibrary The recent evolution of western societies has been characterized by an increasing emphasis on information and communication. As the amount of available information increases, however, the user -- worker, student, citizen -- faces a new problem: selecting and accessing relevant information. More than ever it is crucial to find efficient ways for users to interact with information systems in a way that prevents them from being overwhelmed or simply missing their targets. As a result, hypertext systems have been developed as a means of facilitating the interactions between readers and text. In hypertext, information is organized as a network in which nodes are text chunks (e.g., lists of items, paragraphs, pages) and links are relationships between the nodes (e.g., semantic associations, expansions, definitions, examples -- virtually any kind of relation that can be imagined between two text passages). Unfortunately, the many ways in which these hypertext interfaces can be designed has caused a complexity that extends far beyond the processing abilities of regular users. Therefore, it has become widely recognized that a more rational approach based on a thorough analysis of information users' needs, capacities, capabilities, and skills is needed. This volume seeks to meet that need. From a user-centered perspective -- between systems and users -- this volume presents theoretical and empirical research on the cognitive processes involved in using hypertext. In so doing, it illustrates three main approaches to the design of hypertext systems: *cognitive, which examines how users process multilayered hypertext structures; *ergonomical, which explores how users interact with the design characteristics of hardware and software; and *educational, which studies the learning objectives, frequency and duration of hypertext sessions, type of reading activity, and the user's learning characteristics. This volume also tries to provide answers for the questions that have plagued hypertext research: *What is hypertext good for? *Who is hypertext good for? *If it is useful for learning and instruction, then what type? *What particular cognitive skills are needed to interact successfully with a hypertext system? Anyone interested in the fields of computer science, linguistics, psychology, education, and graphic design will find this volume intriguing, informative, and a definitive starting point for future research in the field of hypertext., Routledge, 1996
