Seizing the Hedgehog by the Tail

Canadian Journal of Philosophy 18 (3):421-432 (1988)
An extended critical article on Charles Taylor's _Human Agency and Language: Philosophical Papers vol 1. Taylor's argument against the project of artificial intelligence, based on the view of human mind as irreducibly involving "self-interpreting agency", fails to consider the possibility that Cognitive Science poses not a single huge and insoluble problem, but many smaller ones that can be approached piecemeal.
