Fodorscience You got your little for language your box for interpreting music and hythm your box for understanding human and animal behavior etc Now if the brain were just this series of boxes geared toward specific tasks it s not clear a how information gets sorted into these box. In this engaging book Jerry Fodor argues against the widely held view that mental processes are largely computations that the architecture of cognition is massively modular and that the explanation of our innate mental structure is basically Darwinian Although Fodor has praised the computational theory of mind as the best theory of cognition. Es b how the "boxes communicate with one another and c how your beliefs changeHere s an "communicate with one another and c how your beliefs changeHere s an Think about Newton who one day asked the uestion Why do objects fall down instead of up Before Newton the best theory going was Aristotle s which said that objects just like to be close to the ground Or if that seems a little too odd to you imagine your uneducated ancestor saying Because that s just what they "Do It S Because "It s because was curious about something that seemed so simple and obvious that a host of other uestions and ideas came up
And Then We Eventuallythen we eventually the law of gravity which not only explains why objects fall down but why planets orbit and tides move to name a few examplesConsider that computational picture is correct that we just have a bunch of little boxes in our minds and Newton s mind was That we have got he considers it to be only a fragment of the truth In fact he claims cognitive scientists do not Kämpfer Der Hoffnung: Wie Ich Den Kindern Madagaskars Eine Zukunft Gab really know much yet about how the mind works the book's titleefers to Steve Pinker's How the Mind WorksFodor's primary aim is to explore the elationship among computational and modular theories of mind nativism and evolutionar.
O different Then how "in the heck did Newton infer the law of gravity What allowed for "the heck did Newton infer the law of gravity What allowed for change of thought or that line of easoning The best answer is that there are capacities that we human beings have that just can t be compartmentalized as little subsystems that must operate across subsystems and allow for evision of belief otherwise we couldn t do this kind of science or ational inuiryAnd that s the book in a nutshell An important book in that the author aises some significant objections to basic assumptions we make in studying the processes and mechanics of thinking T This
Is A Great Introduction Toa great introduction to current debate over computational mind theory I haven t ead much but this gives a great assessment of all the major theories and why they all fail I ll write a better eview once I get through it. Y psychology Along the way he explains how Chomsky's version of nativism differs from that of the widely eceived New Synthesis approach He concludes that although we have no grounds to suppose that most of the mind is modular we have no idea how nonmodular cognition could work Thus according to Fodor cognitive science has hardly gotten start. .
