The computational baby, the classical bathwater, and the middle way

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (3):348-349 (2002)
Abstract
We are sympathetic with the broad aims of Perruchet and Vinter’s (P&V’s) “mentalistic” framework. But it is implausible to claim, as they do, that human cognition can be understood without recourse to unconsciously represented information. In our view, this strategy forsakes the only available mechanistic understanding of intelligent behaviour. Our purpose here is to plot a course midway between the classical unconscious, and P&V’s own non-computational associationism
