Integrated Models of Cognitive Systems

[FROM THE EDITOR'S PREFACE] It is with pleasure that I introduce researchers, teachers, and students to this volume on Integrated Models of Cognitive Systems. All such volumes present a snapshot of the time in which they are created; it is the intent of the contributors that this snapshot will grace a postcard to the future.

The history of cognitive studies is a history of trying to understand the mind by slicing and dicing it into functional components and trying to thoroughly understand each component. Throughout time the size of the components has gotten smaller and their shape has varied considerably with the result that what was a whole, the human mind, has now become a jigsaw puzzle of oddly shaped parts. The emphasis on cognitive systems is an emphasis on how these pieces fit together to achieve “complete processing models” (Newell, 1973) or “activity producing subsystems” (Brooks, 1991). An emphasis on integrated models is an emphasis that recognizes that the cognitive system is too large and complex for a single researcher or laboratory to model and that progress can only be made by developing our various parts so that they can fit together with the parts developed by other researchers in other laboratories.

As Editor it is my duty and pleasure to write a preface to this volume. I view my task as providing a succinct summary of how this volume came to be, an equally succinct overview of the volume, and thanks to the many people whose efforts contributed to its production and to the success of the workshop on which the volume is based. I will, however, avoid in this Preface a more detailed discussion of integrated models of cognitive systems. That discussion is provided by Chapter 1 of this volume and continues throughout the collective work.
