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.
