Abstract: Recently, proponents of the predominant role of search processes have collected data aiming at undermining the importance of pattern recognition. In particular, Chabris and Hearst (2003), using data from rapid chess and blindfold chess, have questioned Chase and Simon’s (1973) and Gobet and Simon’s (1996) account. In this talk, I’ll show that Chabris and Hearst’s (2003) data, far from invalidating theories based on pattern recognition and selective search, actually support them.
