The brain shaped mind
For instance, it seems vital to know why our minds divide up into discrete categories things that really form a continuum. One example Goldblum gives is the distinction between dogs and wolves, and why we see a wolfhound as a dog. But to me this question seemed too complicated to be described in this way. In general, without more background information, the arguments put forward in the book seem too much like 'Just so stories'.
The book seems to be primarily written for an academic audience - it has a defense of connectionism against its critics and plenty of further reading listed at the end. Although it is too basic for those wanting to get into the subject itself, it might serve as a useful overview of connectionism for those sudying a different subject.
