Hayek, Connectionism, and Scientific Naturalism
Advances in Austrian Economics 15:29-50 (2011)
There is much in The Sensory Order that recommends the oft-made claim that Hayek anticipated connectionist theories of mind. To the extent that this is so, contemporary arguments against and for connectionism, as advanced by Jerry Fodor, Zenon Pylyshyn, and John Searle, are shown as applicable to theoretical psychology. However, the ﬁnal section of this chapter highlights an important disanalogy between theoretical psychology and connectionist theories of mind.
