Modularity in Knowledge Representation and Natural-Language Understanding

By Jay L. Garfield

A Bradford Book




The notion of modularity, introduced by Noam Chomsky and developed with special emphasis on perceptual and linguistic processes by Jerry Fodor in his important book The Modularity of Mind, has provided a significant stimulus to research in cognitive science. This book presents essays in which a diverse group of philosophers, linguists, psycholinguists, and neuroscientists—including both proponents and critics of the modularity hypothesis—address general questions and specific problems related to modularity.
