Computationalism in the Philosophy of Mind

Gualtiero Piccinini
2009 Philosophy Compass  
It concludes that computationalism is a family of theories about the mechanisms of cognition.  ...  Computationalism has been the mainstream view of cognition for decades. There are periodic reports of its demise, but they are greatly exaggerated.  ...  Undaunted by these objections, many philosophers of mind are busy defending and developing semantic accounts of computation (Shagrir 2006b , Horowitz 2007 .  ...

Neurodynamics and the Revival of Associationism in Cognitive Science [chapter]

Pim Haselager
1999 Understanding Representation in the Cognitive Sciences  
The recent interest in Dynamical Systems Theory (DST) is part of a growing tendency within cognitive science to replace the structure-sensitive processing of representations by associative processes of  ...  This does not imply a weakening of DST's relevance for the study of cognition, but rather a strengthening of classic associationistic ideas.  ...  Proponents of the dynamical systems theory (DST) argue that cognitive models can be developed on the basis of a minimal or even no use of representation and computation (a.o.  ...

Active Symbols and Internal Models: Towards a Cognitive Connectionism [chapter]

Stephen Kaplan, Mark Weaver, Robert M. French
1992 Connectionism in Context  
In the first section of the article, we examine some recent criticisms of the connectionist enterprise: first, that connectionist models are fundamentally behaviorist in nature (and, therefore, non-cognitive  ...  We claim that such approaches avoid criticisms of behaviorism and are, in principle, capable of supporting full cognition.  ...  We would also like to thank Gray Clossman and David Chalmers, Doug Hofstadter, and Mike Skolnick for their remarks on earlier versions of this article.  ...

2011 Connection science  
Acknowledgements The second author is grateful for the support of a Gerry Lenfest Summer Grant at Washington and Lee University, which supported the effort of organising and running this workshop.  ...  They recently generalised the LISA model to account for aspects of cognitive development, especially the development of relational concepts and relational representations, in the DORA model of Doumas  ...  Topics and goals of the second workshop The August 2010 workshop focused on what may now be the major issue in connectionism and computational cognitive neuroscience: the debate between proponents of localist  ...

Nonclassical connectionism should enter the decathlon

Francisco Calvo Garzón
2003 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
The strengths of classical connectionism on this test derive from its intense effort in addressing empirical phenomena in such domains as language and cognitive development.  ...  Newell (1980; proposed that cognitive theories be developed in an effort to satisfy multiple criteria and to avoid theoretical myopia.  ...  This fundamental objective in the study of development is shared by most scientists in the field, and it is essentially identical with Piaget's (1967 Piaget's ( /1971 ) agenda for developmental psychology  ...

Foundations for a coherent science of the mind

Athanassios Protopapas
2011 Meta Science  
Part I, ''Historical landmarks'' sets the scene by going through crucial conceptual developments in psychology, linguistics, and (what is now) computer science, such as cognitive maps, phrase structure  ...  On the other hand, it remains limited to developmental issues and may serve to reinforce the common misconception that connectionism is mainly about learning, arising from the fact that model weights are  ...

Connectionism and dynamic systems: are they really different?

Esther Thelen, Elizabeth Bates
2003 Developmental Science  
We propose that connectionism and dynamic systems theory are strong contenders for a general theory of development that holds true whatever the content domain.  ...  We illustrate, through our own career narratives, the origins of these theories in motor and language development.  ...  Connectionism arose from computational modeling and focuses largely on the internal mappings of the brain and its representational contents.  ...

Integrative synchronization mechanisms in connectionist cognitive neuroarchitectures

Harald Maurer
2016 Computational Cognitive Science  
This processual or dynamical perspective on cognition, including the dynamical binding mechanisms in cognitive neuroarchitectures, has the advantage of a more accurately modeling of the transient cognitive  ...  This new fluid or liquid perspective in cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience can be regarded as a contribution towards bridging the gap between the discrete, abstract symbolic description of propositions  ...  background of connectionism, the theory of non-linear dynamical systems, and the self-organization paradigm.  ...
