About this product
- DescriptionCognitive representation is the single most important explanatory tion in the sciences of the mind and has served as the cornerstone for the so-called 'cognitive revolution'. This book critically examines the ways in which philosophers and cognitive scientists appeal to representations in their theories, and argues that there is considerable confusion about the nature of representational states. This has led to an excessive over-application of the tion - especially in many of the fresher theories in computational neuroscience. Representation Reconsidered shows how psychological research is actually moving in a n-representational direction, revealing a radical, though largely unticed, shift in our basic understanding of how the mind works.
