Abstract

In this chapter we address the logical and empirical arguments offered by Campbell and Clark (this volume) against our model of numerical processing. We argue that several of their objections are based upon misinterpretations of our model; that the empirical results cited by Campbell and Clark do not constitute clear evidence against the model; and that the approach to theory construction embodied in our model is likely to be more productive than the approach exemplified by Campbell and Clark's encoding complex theory.
