Notes on Clark's Review 1
Andy's review seems excellent to me. In a short space it articulates some of the issues that have separated his views from the A&A views. It tweaks some arguments that have already appeared in the literature. Finally, it presents arguments that, I think, appear in print for the first time. Here I am thinking of his discussion the role of causal loops in forming a cognitive architecture. I saw him give a talk that included this last year at the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Bielefeld. There is in this review a lot that I think is not to be found even in his recent book Supersizing the Mind.
