The Harmonic Mind: From Neural Computation to Optimality-Theoretic GrammarVolume I: Cognitive Architecture: 1 (Bradford Books)
"This book is highly recommendable for anyone who is interested in cognitive science, connectionism, the theory of neural networks, optimality theory and their relation to a wide range of applications, above all, in linguistics, and especially to philosophers, computer scientists, linguists, cognitive neuroscientists and psychologists." -- Harald Maurer, Journal for General Philosophy of Science "The Harmonic Mind is a work of remarkable scope. Smolensky, Legendre, and their coauthors elaborate the connectionist foundations of optimality theory and explore the multifaceted consequences of the cognitive architecture they posit. Their investigations touch on an extraordinary range of linguistic, computational, psychological, mathematical, and philosophical issues of central importance to the scientific study of language." --Tom Wasow, Professor of Linguistics and Philosophy, Stanford University "Smolensky and Legendre have written a marvelous book of sweeping scope. It contains state-of-the-art research on topics ranging from neural networks to phonology and syntax, including language acquisition, psycholinguistics, and computational linguistics. But its major contribution is its integration of this diverse research under the single unifying theme of optimization, instantiated as harmony maximization in neural networks and optimality theory in symbolic grammars. Its grand vision and sense of wonder and excitement about the phenomena it describes is reminiscent of early work in cognitive science and a welcome antidote to much specialized contemporary research. It serves as a model for, and hopefully will stimulate, integrative research that pays careful attention to empirical phenomena." --Mark Johnson, Professor of Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences, Brown University "The Harmonic Mind presents a unique synthetic vision of cognitive science, one that everyone interested in cognition, language, mind, and brain will want to know and understand. Over 23 chapters in two volumes, Smolensky, Legendre, and their collaborators lay out a thorough testament to their view that the symbolic and subsymbolic paradigms must be brought together to understand the nature of the human mind. The resulting work is impressive in its scope, encompassing fundamental principles of mental processing and representation and their application to linguistic theory, language processing, and universal grammar. Students just entering the field will find all the background they need to understand the content of the book, while seasoned scholars will find substantial food for thought and discussion." --James L. McClelland, Carnegie Mellon University "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." --Aravind K. Joshi, Henry Salvatori Professor of Computer and Cognitive Science, University of Pennsylvania
