Maybe this old dinosaur isn't extinct: What does Bayesian modeling add to associationism?
Baetu I., Barberia I., Murphy RA., Baker AG.
We agree with Jones & Love (J&L) that much of Bayesian modeling has taken a fundamentalist approach to cognition; but we do not believe in the potential of Bayesianism to provide insights into psychological processes. We discuss the advantages of associative explanations over Bayesian approaches to causal induction, and argue that Bayesian models have added little to our understanding of human causal reasoning. © 2011 Cambridge University Press.
