In this chapter we propose a problem-space architecture, called Soar; that implements universal subgoaling.4 Throughout this chapter we will verify that Soar satisfies the six requirements for universal subgoaling listed in Figure 1–4. Soar is a modification of the Soar1 architecture (Laird & Newell, 1983b). At appropriate places, we will contrast Soar to the Soar1 architecture.
