As I understand from today's lecture, cognitive psychologists use
symbols, images and neural nets as a way of explaining the function of
the brain. OK this is fine, these models give us a bases on which to
work from in order to understand how the brain works but, can they and
are they able to explain the more complex issues of human behaviour and
thoughts. Are these the issues of whether there exists a mind as
opposed to only the brain? How do cognitive psychologists explain the
more complex human behaviours such as individual beliefs, morality,
choice and free will?
