  • Vera and Simon (1993) have provided a helpful and welcome challenge in their articulate questioning of the point of view that emphasizes the situated character of action, including cognition and learning. A full discussion of their arguments and examples requires more space than we are allotted for this response, and we are preparing a longer article that will consider the issues they raised in more detail. We also welcome this opportunity to comment briefly on their provocative arguments.
