The imagery debate: Déjà vu all over again? Commentary on Zenon Pylyshyn
Graduate studies at Western
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (2):209-210 (2002)
|Abstract||The imagery debate re-enacts controversies persisting since Descartes. The controversy remains important less for what we can learn about visual imagery than about cognitive science itself. In the tradition of Arnauld, Reid, Bartlett, Austin and Ryle, Pylyshyn’s critique exposes notorious mistakes being unwittingly rehearsed not only regarding imagery but also in several independent domains of research in modern cognitive science.|
