    Motivation Rather Than Imitation Determined the Appearance of Language.Pavel N. Prudkov - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (2):142-143.
    Arbib derives the origin of language from the emergence of a complex imitation system; however, it is unlikely that this complication could occur without a prior complicating within the imitated systems. This means that Arbib's hypothesis is not correct, because the other systems determined the appearance of language. In my opinion, language emerged when the motivational system became able to support goal-directed processes with no innate basis.

    Connectionism, ACT-R, and the Principle of Self-Organization.Pavel N. Prudkov - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (5):616-617.
    The target article is based upon the principle that complex mental phenomena result from the interactions among some elementary entities. Connectionist nodes and ACT-R's production rules can be considered as such entities. However, before testing against Newell's macro-criteria, self-organizing models must be tested against criteria relating to the properties of their elementary entities. When such micro-criteria are considered, they separate connectionism from ACT-R and the comparison of these theories against Newell's Tests is hardly correct.

    A View on Human Goal-Directed Activity and the Construction of Artificial Intelligence.Pavel N. Prudkov - 2010 - Minds and Machines 20 (3):363-383.
    Although activity aimed at the construction of artificial intelligence started about 60 years ago however, contemporary intelligent systems are effective in very narrow domains only. One of the reasons for this situation appears to be serious problems in the theory of intelligence. Intelligence is a characteristic of goal-directed systems and two classes of goal-directed systems can be derived from observations on animals and humans, one class is systems with innately and jointly determined goals and means. The other class contains systems (...)
