    History. The term mental model is believed to have originated with Kenneth Craik in his book The Nature of Explanation. Georges-Henri Luquet in Le dessin enfantin (Children's drawings), published in by Alcan, Paris, argued that children construct internal models, a view that influenced, among others, child psychologist Jean Piaget.. Philip Johnson-Laird published Mental Models. Mental Models offers nothing less than a unified theory of the major properties of mind: comprehension, inference, and consciousness. In spirited and graceful prose, Johnson-Laird argues that we apprehend the world by building inner mental replicas of the relations among objects and events that concern us. The mind is essentially a model-building device that can itself be modeled on a digital 1/5(1).

      This classic volume compiles and describes interdisciplinary research on the formal nature of human knowledge about the world. Three key dimensions that characterize mental models research are examined: the nature of the domain studied, the nature of the theoretical approach, and the nature of the methodology.

Mental models are how we simplify complexity, why we consider some things more relevant than others, and how we reason. A mental model is simply a representation of how something works.

We cannot keep all of the details of the world in our brains, so we use models to simplify the complex into understandable and organizable chunks.
