Rutkowska J. C. (1990) Action, connectionism and enaction: A developmental perspective. AI & Society 4(2): 96–114. Fulltext at
This article compares the potential of classical and connectionist computational concepts for explanations of innate infant knowledge and of its development. It focuses on issues relating to: the perceptual process; the control and form(s) of perceptual-behavioural coordination; the role of environmental structure in the organization of action; and the construction of novel forms of activity. There is significant compatibility between connectionist and classical views of computation, though classical concepts are, at present, better able to provide a comprehensive computational view of the infant. However, Varela’s “enaction” perspective poses a significant challenge for both approaches.
