Concepts, correlations, and some challenges for connectionist cognition

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (6):722-723 (2008)
Abstract
Rogers & McClelland's (R&M's) précis represents an important effort to address key issues in concepts and categorization, but few of the simulations deliver what is promised. We argue that the models are seriously underconstrained, importantly incomplete, and psychologically implausible; more broadly, R&M dwell too heavily on the apparent successes without comparable concern for limitations already noted in the literature
