Schema theory offers a compelling framework for understanding how human being organize and utilize knowledge. Assimilation, a core process within this theory, involves integrating new information into pre-existing mental structures known as schemas. This article delves into the conceptual foundations of assimilation, exploring its role in cognitive efficiency, the maintenance of continuity, and the interplay with accommodation for schema evolution. Factors influencing assimilation, its implications, limitations, and potential avenues for future research are also discussed.
