    A Historical Introduction to the Philosophy of Mind is designed both to provide a selection of core readings on the subject and to make those readings accessible by providing commentaries to guide the reader through initially intimidating material.

The readings concentrate on providing the student with a solid grounding in the theories of representative figures (...)

  3. The Role of Natural Constraints in Computational Theories of Vision.Peter Alan Morton - 1991 - Dissertation, The University of Western Ontario (Canada)
    The thesis examines the philosophical implications of the computational theory of early vision developed by Marr. According to Marr, early visual processes consist of sequences of "modular" computational mechanisms. These processes rely on functional relations between rates of change in stimulus magnitudes which result from certain contingent, global properties--natural constraints--of the physical world. ;Marr argues that explanations of early vision must have three distinct levels of description: computational, algorithmic and physical. In Chapter 1 I defend the explanatory significance of this (...)

    Marr's Theory of Vision and the Argument from Success.Peter A. Morton - 1988 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1988:154 - 161.
    This paper considers the implications of David Marr's computational theory of vision for the issues of individualism and methodological solipsism. A recent argument that the theory is nonindividualistic is shown to be similar to Gibson's arguments for "direct perception." The paper argues that a complete analysis of Marr's theory must take into account Marr's rejection of Gibson's approach, and that such an analysis shows Marr's theory to be consistent with methodological solipsism as a research strategy.
