Description

The Vancouver Studies in Cognitive Science series collects papers delivered at a yearly conference hosted by the Cognitive Science Programme of Simon Fraser University as well as papers written especially for each volume. Each volume focuses on a topic drawn from one of the four disciplines that make up cognitive science: philosophy, linguistics, artificial intelligence, and psychology. In this, the first volume in the series, leading exponents and critics of "information-based" theories of cognition and language reflect on the philosophical underpinnings of their respective approaches and identify and explore points of convergence and divergence. Topics covered include: what is information?, information and representation, belief and mental representation, and intrinsic information. Contributors include John Perry, Nicholas Asher, Fred Dretske, Scott Soames, Fred Llandman, Lee R. Brooks, and Ian Pratt.show more
