    Situated Action, Symbol Systems and Universal Computation.Andrew Wells - 1996 - Minds and Machines 6 (1):33-46.
    Vera & Simon (1993a) have argued that the theories and methods known as situated action or situativity theory are compatible with the assumptions and methodology of the physical symbol systems hypothesis and do not require a new approach to the study of cognition. When the central criterion of computational universality is added to the loose definition of a symbol system which Vera and Simon provide, it becomes apparent that there are important incompatibilities between the two approaches such that situativity theory (...)

    Parallel Architectures and Mental Computation.Andrew Wells - 1993 - British Journal for the Philosophy of Science 44 (3):531-542.
    In a recent paper, Lyngzeidetson [1990] has claimed that a type of parallel computer called the ‘Connection Machine’ instantiates architectural principles which will ‘revolutionize which "functions" of the human mind can and cannot be modelled by (non-human) computational automata.’ In particular, he claims that the Connection Machine architecture shows the anti-mechanist argument from Gödel's theorem to be false for at least one kind of parallel computer. In the first part of this paper, I argue that Lyngzeidetson's claims are not supported (...)

    Evolution's Gift is the Right Account of the Origin of Recoding Functions.Andrew Wells - 1997 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (1):83-83.
    Clark & Thornton argue that the recoding functions which are used to solve type-2 problems are, at least in part, the ontogenetic products of general-purpose mechanisms. This commentary disputes this and suggests that recoding functions are adaptive specializations.

    Race Fixing: Improvement and Race in Eighteenth-Century Britain.Andrew Wells - 2010 - History of European Ideas 36 (1):134-138.
    Scholarship on race in the eighteenth century continues to treat the concept as somewhat foreign to Britain itself. This essay, which reviews two new works that contribute to the ‘domestication’ of eighteenth-century ideas of race, suggests one way in which race was interwoven with the fabric of British culture in the period.
