Rational models vary in their goals and sources of justification. While the assumptions of some are grounded in the environment, those of others-which I label probabilistic models-are induced and so require more traditional sources of justification, such as generalizability to dissimilar tasks and making novel predictions. Their contribution to scientific understanding will remain uncertain until standards of evidence are clarified.
