The mind as a control system

In Christopher Hookway & Donald M. Peterson (eds.), Philosophy and Cognitive Science. Cambridge University Press. 69-110 (1993)
This is not a scholarly research paper, but a ‘position paper’ outlining an approach to the study of mind which has been gradually evolving since about 1969 when I first become acquainted with work in Artificial Intelligence through Max Clowes. I shall try to show why it is more fruitful to construe the mind as a control system than as a computational system
