Simulations, simulators, amodality, and abstract terms

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (4):628-629 (1999)

Barsalou's interesting model might benefit from defining simulation and clarifying the implications of prior critiques for simulations (and not just for perceptual symbols). Contrary to claims, simulators (or frames) appear, in the limit, to be amodal. In addition, the account of abstract terms seems extremely limited.
