An inquiry is conducted into the nature, origins, and tenability of the information processing approach in cognitive psychology. Logic regarded as the essence of reason originates with classical Greek philosophy. In the seventeenth century this developed into the idea of the subject as an inner space where the world of objects is known by way of a mathematical-logical reconstruction. To materialists all things are known in this way, but the existence of the subject as a precondition for such knowledge is denied, by attempting to reduce it to the world of objects. Information theory developed in the wake of mathematical logic, and presents a general theory of problem-solving in the theory of formal systems. This suggests a model of the mind in terms of the manipulation of symbols by way of formal rules. Such symbols are abstract objects, individuated only by their form. Through the logical relationships among them they are able to maintain the lawlike relationships that exist among things in the world. In this way they serve as representations of the world. The functionalist approach to mind is an attempt to solve the problem of the relationship between thought and behaviour (i.e. the subject-object problem) by the application of information theory. Those functionalists that take the aspect of meaning or the intentional content of the mind seriously, argue that while representations function inwardly as symbols in a formal system, they also refer to objects in the world of experience. Materialist reductionists simply deny the level of referral, and view the inner computations as a purely syntactical process. By analyzing the information processing approach in various guises, it is shown that the solution given to the problem of the relationship between mind and behaviour does not succeed. As long as the underlying objectivist assumptions are maintained, this problem appears to be insoluble. A shift of perspective is suggested. Attention should be directed to the conc

On the anatomy of power : bodies of knowledge in South African socio-medical discourse by Alexander Butchart( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Derived from a marxist/liberal humanist view of power, conventional critiques and historical accounts of the socio-medical sciences in South Africa see only their power to repress and negate the true bodily attributes and authentic person of the African. In so doing, they ignore the productive capacity of these knowledges and practices as a manifestation of what Michel Foucault termed "disciplinary" power, by which the human body is manufactured and made manageable as an object of medical knowledge and industrial utilisation. Accordingly, this thesis offers just such a Foucaultian reading of western socio-medical knowledge in South Africa to demonstrate how it has operated to fabricate the bodies of Africans as visible objects possessed of distinct attributes that have provoked particular strategies for their surveillance, management, and government in health and disease
