This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the concept of metareasoning. It then provides manifesto in an attempt to present in plain language and simple diagrams a description of a model of metareasoning that mirrors the action-selection and perception cycle in first-order reasoning. Many theories and implementations are covered by this model, including those concerning metalevel control, introspective monitoring, distributed metareasoning, and models of self. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   artificial intelligence, first-order reasoning, self, metalevel control, introspective monitoring, distributed metareasoning
