Re: Pylyshyn: Against Imagery

Just an extra bit about Pylyshyn: he says that for computer
modelling of cognition it must match cognition in detail.
I assume that a mechanical model of a human arm that included
a flexible tube with a sucker on the end would therefore
fail according to Pylyshyn, even if the condition-action pair
(in this case the goal/stimulus-behaviour pair) turned out to
be the same. The difficulty is what correspondence can made to
a hidden system? Through cognitive processes or physiological
bits of the brain?
