Taking Semantics and Embodiment into Account

Constructivist Foundations 9 (1):139-141 (2013)

Open peer commentary on the article “A Cybernetic Computational Model for Learning and Skill Acquisition” by Bernard Scott & Abhinav Bansal. Upshot: The Computational Theory of Mind suffers from an inherent weakness owing to its difficulty in taking semantics and embodiment properly into account. It is suggested that these difficulties could be alleviated if it were recognized that the fact that the model presented here employs a computer as a tool, to highlight certain key features of its dynamics, does not necessarily involve assuming that the underlying processes that are modelled are themselves strictly computational in nature
