Connectionism : Debates on Psychological Explanation (Volume 2)

£9.99

Product description

This volume provides an introduction to and review of key contemporary debates concerning connectionism, and the nature of explanation and methodology in cognitive psychology. The first debate centres on the question of whether human cognition is best modelled by classical or by connectionist architectures. The second centres on the question of the compatibility between folk, or commonsense, psychological explanation and explanations based on connectionist models of cognition. Each of the two sections includes a classic reading along with important responses, and concludes with a specially commissioned reply by the main contributor. The editorial introductions provide a comprehensive survey and map through the debates.

Paperback book in very good condition. Shelf wear to page edges, and some fading to spine but the pages are clean and tight. Previous owner's inscription on front free end paper - possibly written by the authors.
