    Attitudes, Chaos and the Connectionist Mind.J. Richard Eiser - 1994 - Cambridge: Blackwell.
    This book presents a broad-ranging and fascinating examination of attitudes: how we form them; how we organize them towards others; and whether they are inherently human or could also be developed by computers. Professor Eiser suggests there are fundamental objections to the idea of a computer having a sense of self or a set of attitutdes.

    The Dynamical Hypothesis in Social Cognition.J. Richard Eiser - 1998 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (5):638-638.
    Research in attitudes and social cognition exemplifies van Gelder's distinction between the computational and dynamical approaches. The former emphasizes linear measurement and rational decision-making. The latter considers processes of associative memory and self-organization in attitude formation and social influence. The study of dynamical processes in social cognition has been facilitated by connectionist approaches to computation.
