Abstract:

Classical computationalism--the view that mental states are
computational states--has come under attack in recent years. Critics
claim that in defining computation solely in abstract, syntactic
terms, computationalism neglects the real-time, embodied, real-world
constraints with which cognitive systems must cope. Instead of
abandoning computationalism altogether, however, some researchers are
reconsidering it, recognizing that real-world computers, like minds,
must deal with issues of embodiment, interaction, physical
implementation, and semantics.

This book lays the foundation for a successor notion of
computationalism. It covers a broad intellectual range, discussing
historic developments of the notions of computation and mechanism in
the computationalist model, the role of Turing machines and
computational practice in artificial intelligence research, different
views of computation and their role in the computational theory of
mind, the nature of intentionality, and the origin of language.
