Pylyshyn - Como a mente se conecta com o mundo

"In this masterful book, Pylyshyn lays out his important research program on attentional indices. He draws out the theoretical significance of his (and others') empirical work on early vision and attention for foundational issues in cognitive science, including the problem how representations are grounded in the world as well as the distinction between conceptual and nonconceptual representations. The synthesis of his empirical research program is in itself sufficient reason to read the book, but the broad theoretical context in which he puts the work makes it a thrilling ride."
