How do we reason about topological relations? Do people with different cultural backgrounds differ in how they reason about such relations? We conducted two topological reasoning experiments, one in Germany and one in Mongolia to analyze such questions. Topological relations such as "A overlaps B", "B lies within C" were presented to the participants as premises and they had to find a conclusion that was consistent with the premises ("What is the relation between A and C?"). The problem… CONTINUE READING
