Foundations Of Cognitive Science

Elements of Classical Cognitive Science

The purpose of this week is to present some of the key ideas that define classical cognitive science. We explore a number of core ideas including the disembodied mind, recursion, physical symbol systems, and the notions of weak and strong equivalence. Some topics discussed in the chapter did not make it to the lecture, so make sure that you are familiar with both materials!
