This manifesto proposes a simple model of metareasoning that constitutes a general framework to organize research on this topic. The claim is that metareasoning, like the action-perception cycle of reasoning, is composed of the introspective monitoring of reasoning and the subsequent meta-level control of reasoning. This model holds for single agent and multiagent systems and is broad enough to include models of self. We offer the model as a short conversation piece to which the community can compare and contrast individual theories.
