Much artificial intelligence research is based on the construction of large impressive-looking programs, the theoretical content of which may not always be clearly stated.

We illustrate this problem by referring to Lenat's am program, in which the techniques employed are somewhat obscure in spite of the impressive performance. © 1984.
