Praise

Explaining the Computational Mind is a substantial and excellent contribution to the growing literature on the foundations of computational cognitive neuroscience….The book is a must-read piece that will have to be dealt with by anyone writing on computation in cognitive science.—Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Milkowski’s inclusive notion of computation provides a very useful framework for considering a wide range of computational approaches….The book is clearly written and engaging throughout; it is highly recommended reading for anyone interested in scientific explanation of the mind.

Review of Metaphysics

In Explaining the Computational Mind, Marcin Milkowski is driven by a similar desire to offer a non-semantic, mechanistic account of computation that accommodates scientific practice…This leads Milkowski to develop a ‘transparent’ account of computation…That such a unitary account of computation can be given is, according to Milkowski, warranted by the presumed fact that it is a natural kind.

Mind

Milkowski addresses the notion of a computational mind in a concise and yet remarkably comprehensive manner… We appreciate the pluralistic flavor of this work… Milkowski gives a compelling and scientifically solid argument for the idea that computation can be described in various ways… An interesting contribution. The accurate and comprehensive presentation of both scientific and philosophical insights makes it a recommendation for anyone interested in computation and/or in cognitive science.
