Summary

This report describes research conducted regarding the development of a precise scientific language called the "Set-Function" Language (SFL) which was formulated in terms of sets and functions. The SFL retains many of the basic aspects of cognitive formulations but also provides more rigor than most of the other scientific languages. The SFL characterizes notions like rules, decoding and encoding processes, "chaining", reference mechanisms, and higher order rules in a precise manner. The report claims that the SFL is more adequate than the existing S-R and cognitive languages for formulating research on meaningful learning. Also, the author presents a partial solution to the problem of "what (rule) is learned." (FL)
