The Biological Foundations of Cognitive Science

Mark H. Bickhard Abstract

Computationalism suggests that mental properties and processes can be modeled independently of most specifics about the brain — mind is like a computer program, and

program properties do not depend on details of the computers that execute them. But computationalism suffers from fatal conceptual problems concerning the nature of representation. An alternative model of representation, called interactivism, is outlined and its implications for the biological foundations of Cognitive Science are explored. Interactivism profoundly reconfigures our conceptions of those biological foundations.
