Connectionism, Concepts, and Folk Psychology: The Legacy of Alan Turing
Peter Millican, P. J. R. Millican, Andy Clark
Clarendon Press, Nov 28, 1996 - Computers - 281 pages
This is the second of two volumes of essays in commemoration of Alan Turing; it celebrates his intellectual legacy within the philosophy of mind and cognitive science. A distinguished international cast of contributors focus on the relationship beteen a scientific, computational image of the mind and a common-sense picture of the mind as an inner arena populated by concepts, beliefs, intentions, and qualia. Topics covered include the causal potency of folk- psychological states, the connectionist reconception of learning and concept formation, the understanding of the notion of computation itself, and the relation between philosophical and psychological theories of concepts.
