Product Description


This is an analysis of the philosophical assumptions and implications of current artificial intelligence (AI) representation schemes, particularly those dealing with the underlying cognitive processes of language. The work attacks the traditional, logic-based view of language and knowledge representation and argues that cognitive mechanisms provide a better model for structuring knowledge that that of first-order logic. The author explains her dynamic type hierarchy theory, a new approach to metaphor, language and knowledge representation.
