Description - Cognitive Science and Folk Psychology by W. F. G. Haselager
"Cognitive science and folk psychology" addresses some issues in psychology and psychology today: whether folk psychology provides a correct account of the mental causes of our behaviour; whether our everyday terms will ultimately be replaced by a language developed from computational models and neurobiology. The author overviews the key literature in the field, including work of Fodor and Churchland, before exploring the classic 'frame problem' to assess the future prospects of cognitive science. The scope of the frame problem, touching upon debates around connectionism, non-demonstrative reasoning, representationalism and the language of thought, questions the very possibility of a truly artificial intelligence.
