What is the meaning of Cognitive Content?

Cognitive content is a term used to describe the extent to which a cause map, that is, cognitive map, concept map or influence diagram represents phenomenological beliefs (that A, B, etc. exist’) and causal notions (that ‘A leads to B, C is an outcome of B’) within an interlinked, systemic pattern, and this reflects the perspective of those whose cognition is represented by the mapping. (Laukkannen, 1998: 168-191).
