Product description

From the Back Cover

'Connections and Symbols' provides the first systematic analysis of the explosive new field of connectionism that is challenging the basic tenets of cognitive science. Criticism of connectionist like operations; and a focus on what it is about human cognition that supports the traditional physical symbol system hypothesis. While criticizing many aspects of connectionist models, the authors also identify aspects of cognition that could be explained by the connectionist models.
