Dynamicists versus computationalists: Whither mechanists?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (5):629-629 (1998)
Abstract
Van Gelder's characterization of the differences between the dynamical and computational hypotheses, in terms of the contrast between change versus state and geometry versus structure, suggests that the dynamical approach is also at odds with classical mechanism. Dynamical and mechanistic approaches are in fact allies: mechanism can identify components whose properties define the variables that are related in dynamical analyses.
