  • The Harmonic Mind is a very comprehensive and ambitious effort to integrate connectionist and symbolic processing and Smolensky Legendre and their associates present this integration in the domain of language. Researchers of different persuasions in cognitive science and linguistics will find these volumes very rewarding. I believe that the research presented here will raise very substantially the level of discourse concerning the relationship of connectionism and symbolic processing.
