All information processing entails computation, or, if R. A. Fisher had been a cognitive scientist . .

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (5):637-638 (1998)
Abstract
We argue that the dynamical and computational hypotheses are compatible and in fact need each other: they are about different aspects of cognition. However, only computationalism is about the information-processing aspect. We then argue that any form of information processing relying on matching and comparing, as cognition does, must use discrete representations and computations defined over them.
