Mental imagery is simultaneously symbolic and analog

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (2):205-206 (2002)

Abstract

With admirable clarity, Pylyshyn shows that there is little evidence that mental imagery is strongly constrained to be analog. He urges that imagery must be considered part of a more general symbolic system. The ultimate solution to the challenges of image theory, however, rest on understanding the manner in which mental imagery is both a symbolic and an analog system.
