|The Systematicity Arguments|
2003, 276 S, Kt, (Springer)
The Systematicity Arguments is the only book-length treatment of the systematicity and productivity argumentS It explores each of the arguments in detail addressing the explanatory standard that is involved in the arguments, what is to be explained in the arguments, how diverse theories have attempted to meet the explanatory challenges of systematicity, and how successful these attempts have been. Classical, Connectionist, Tensor Product Theories of cognitive architecture, among others, are examined. While not intended to be an introductory work, the book presupposes no familiarity with the leading theories of cognitive architecture or the systematicity and productivity argumentS The theories, the arguments, and their ramifications are explored in detail. The book is, therefore, suitable for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and specialists in cognitive science, philosophy of psychology, and philosophy of mind.
