Localism as a first step toward symbolic representation

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):480-481 (2000)
Page argues convincingly for several important properties of localist representations in connectionist models of cognition. I argue that another important property of localist representations is that they serve as the starting point for connectionist representations of symbolic (relational) structures because they express meaningful properties independent of one another and their relations.
