THNET: THinkNet connectionist software

This directory contains the THNET (THinkNet) connectionist software package, including ACME, ARCS, and ECHO. It is a set of Common Lisp programs for modeling high-level cognitive operations using connectionist networks. Its major components are: 1. common modules for running and displaying networks; 2. ACME (Analogical Constraint Mapping Engine), a program that creates networks for analogical mapping; 3. ECHO (Explanatory Coherence Model), a program that creates networks for evaluating explanatory hypotheses; and 4. ARCS (Analogical Retrieval by Constraint Satisfaction), a program to model analogical retrieval.
