The artificial intelligence, without concepts extracted from other disciplines, like psychology, has shown to be less powerfull and eficient than expected at a first glance and a lot less achieving than it promised. However, the value of computing in the study of cognition can no longer be ignored. The possibility of modeling human cognitive processes in machines has significantly known importance to justify the concentration of efforts in its development. Computational theory of mind rises a series of questionings to cognitive science and directs efforts of computer sciences in attempt to elucidate them. The limits in the cognition study through the analogy with digital computers is of ultimate relevance to the understanding and the development of both, cognitive sciences and computing disciplines.
