Abstract: The formal interaction between domain knowledge and human cognition in design is described by using some logical operations (induction, deduction, extension). When the extracted domain knowledge is not computable using deduction, a designer can critically think to modify the knowledge until a deductive agreement is discovered. In such a critical thinking process, the designer by nature uses commonsense (i.e., general knowledge) and his or her familiarity to the problem. A logical operation called extension is developed to formalise the above mentioned critical thinking process. Real-life examples are also shown to provide more insight into the presented logical operations.
