Representation crisis: commentary on "Investigating the concept of representation in the neural and psychological sciences"

Research output: Working paperPreprint

Abstract

In this paper, the concept of mental representation in cognitive science is explored, discussing its evolution from traditional cognitivism to Embodied Cognitive Science (ECogSci). It explains how cognitive psychology, initially influenced by computational models, has shifted towards a more holistic understanding that includes the agent's sociocultural context. The paper critiques the reductionist view of the mind as merely a computational entity, emphasizing the need for a broader perspective that considers the full agent's enculturation in understanding mental representation.
