The project of justifying all the limits and failings of human cognition as inevitable consequences of strategies that are actually optimal relative to the limits on computational resources available may have some value, but it is far from a complete explanation. It is inconsistent with both common observation and a large body of experimentation, and it is of limited use in explaining human cognition.
