Symbol Manipulation: Alternatives to the Computational View of Mind.
Kolers, Paul A.; Smythe, William E.
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v23 n3 p289-314 Jun 1984
Examines some of the issues that underlie the conceptual structure of the computational approach to cognition. Finds that this approach construes symbolization too narrowly, thereby blocking more adequate treatments of learning and acquisition of skills. Discusses the notion of symbol and symbolization and suggests an alternative approach to the study of cognition. (SED)
