An entrée of Cognitive Science with an occasional side of whatever the hell else I want to talk about.
figure 1 or figure 2?
Hey, I know your busy with the book club and all but is there anyway you can do a post on computation and cognition? I can't find anything on the subject.
Wow, that's a pretty broad topic? Are there any aspects of the relationship between computation and cognition that you'd like me to talk about?
Ummm all of it.... (=I have to admit my knowledge of cog sci is fairly limited. I'm interested in the computationalist paradigm in cognitive science and perspectives on the subject matter from Neuroscience.Can you recomend any books that offer a introduction on the subject? I can understand if you don't want to write a post on the topic.
Hmm... just about any introductory cog sci textbook would work. Also, I just posted on connectionism, which will give you the alternative perspective.
Re: anon's request for overviews of computation and cognition, you may want to check out Eric Baum - What Is Thought? It's quite dense but covers a lot of ground from a computer scientist's perspective.
There's now a two volume analytical history of computational cognitive science by Margaret Boden, published in 2006 by OUP: Mind as Machine.Pointers are in my short informal, incomplete, biased review:http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/cogaff/misc/boden-mindasmachine.htmlAaron Sloman
