COGENT: Real science or just technology?

John Fox

The current COGENT environment is the end result of an effort to achieve a number of objectives, most obvious of which is the provision of an easy to use, powerful tool to explore psychological theories. But we were also motivated by a desire to provide a rigorous scientific methodology for computational modelling, to overcome the "hacking" which is often the reality. In this introductory talk I shall review this objective, and assess the extent to which the present system achieves it.
