Abstract

We live in a world of complex relationships, united by a myriad of connections, existing in continuous granularities and multiple dimensions. Discovering truths in this complexity requires an ability to decipher causality amidst endless potentially spurious associations. It is our belief that underlying investigative skills are internal representations of external systems. Effective inquiry strategies evolve out of strong internal models of the mechanisms of both the specific and general systems of inquiry. This paper outlines a work-in-progress, involving the creation of technologies which foster the development of more advanced internal mental models of causal systems during inquiry, thus improving reasoning competence.
