Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: Is a human being a person or a machine? Is the mind a social construction or a formal device? It is both, William Frawley tells us, and by bringing together Vygotsky's sociocultural theory of the mind and cognitive science's computational model, he shows us how this not only can but must be. To do so, Frawley focuses on language, particularly on how the computational mind uses language to mediate the internal and external worlds during thought. By reconciling the linguistic device and the linguistic person, his book argues for a Vygotskyan cognitive science. Frawley begins by exploding the internalist/externalist dichotomy that presently drives cognitive science and falsely pits computationalism against socioculturalism. He replaces the reigning Platonic paradigm of computational mind-science with a framework based on an unusual account of Wittgenstein's philosophical struggle. He thus sets the stage for a Vygotskyan cognitive science centered on three aspects of mind: subjectivity, real-time operation, and breakdown. In this context, he demonstrates that a critical aspect of Vygotskyan theory - private speech - can be understood as the mind's metacomputational regulator. An examination of certain congenital disorders (such as Williams syndrome, Turner syndrome, and autism) that disrupt speech further clarifies the issue of computational and cognitive control.

Rezension: Frawley reminds us of the continuing relevance of early Soviet psychology to the understanding of cognitive development and attempts to unite this with modern-day (western) computationalism...[He] begins his quest for unification with a thorough, and frequently masterful survey of the background terrain. The breadth of coverage is impressive...[and his] arguments concerning consciousness and meta-consciousness are compelling...Frawley has presented a coherent position that modern cognitive science cannot ignore. -- Richard Cooper "Times Higher Education Supplement"
