PS: Johnson-Laird has two papers listed in the bibliography of
"Judgement Under Uncertainty", cited in chapters 6 and 34. The next
author after that, E. E. Jones, whose name I don't recognize at all, has
six papers listed, cited in chapters 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, and 15.

No offense against Johnson-Laird, of course. I'm sure he's a major
figure in whatever academic field he's actually a part of.
