Conceptual Spaces



Conceptual Spaces Within cognitive science, two approaches currently dominate the problem of modeling representations The symbolic approach views cognition as computation involving symbolic manipulation Connectionism, a special case of associationism, models associations using artificial neuron networks Peter Gardenfors offers his theory of conceptual representations as a bridge between the symbolic and connectionist approaches.Symbolic representation is particularly weak at modeling concept learning, which is paramount for understanding many cognitive phenomena Concept learning is closely tied to the notion of similarity, which is also poorly served by the symbolic approach Gardenfors s theory of conceptual spaces presents a framework for representing information on the conceptual level A conceptual space is built up from geometrical structures based on a number of quality dimensions The main applications of the theory are on the constructive side of cognitive science as a constructive model the theory can be applied to the development of artificial systems capable of solving cognitive tasks Gardenfors also shows how conceptual spaces can serve as an explanatory framework for a number of empirical theories, in particular those concerning concept formation, induction, and semantics His aim is to present a coherent research program that can be used as a basis for detailed investigations.

    G rdenfors sketches an intermediate level of representational content, between the symbolic syntactic and propositional and associationist levels, and argues that this intermediate level of conceptual content helps resolve a variety of deep problems for cognitive science, such as how thinkers acquire novel cognitive content, how to understand metaphor, and how induction works My interest is mainly in philosophy of language, and there are many interesting suggestions for how to think differe G rdenfors sketches an intermediate level of representational content, betwee...
