Hilary Putnam, who may have been the first philosopher to advance the notion that the computer is an apt model for the mind, takes a radically new view of his own theory of functionalism in this book. Putnam argues that in fact the computational or functionalist analogy cannot answer the important questions about the nature of such mental states as belief, reasoning, rationality, and knowledge that lie at the heart of the philosophy of mind.

A mental representation (or cognitive representation), in philosophy of mind, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science, is a hypothetical internal cognitive symbol that represents external reality.

A mental representation (or cognitive representation), in philosophy of mind, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science, is a hypothetical internal cognitive symbol that represents external reality, or else a mental process that makes use of such a symbol: "a formal system for making explicit certain entities or types of information, together with a specification of how the system does this".

University press So thoughts (and hence the mind) are of an essentially different nature than physical objects.

1 In this book the terms 'representation and 'reference' always refer to a relation between a word (or other sort of sign, symbol, or representation) and something that actually exists (. not just an 'object of thought'). There is a sense of 'refer' in which I can 'refer' to what does not exist; this is not the sense in which 'refer' is used here. An older word for what I call 'representation' or 'reference' is denotation. So thoughts (and hence the mind) are of an essentially different nature than physical objects.

a clear and perspicuous book on the intricacies of representation.

"Representation and Reality" is very much a work by the "later Putnam", a guy who, for better or worse, is nowhere near as influential in the philosophy of mind as the "middle Putnam" was, the Putnam of the 1960s and 1970s. Some of the views presented here are sort of interesting as you go through them, but I find that nothing by the later Putnam ever ends up really staying with me or substantially altering my picture of things. It's pleasant enough to read, but the experience is surprisingly junk-foodish (to the extent this is possible in analytic philosophy). Bottom line: if you're interested in the career trajectory of perhaps the greatest living American philosopher or in hearing some wide-ranging objections to certain central elements of contemporary philosophy of mind, this may be the book for you. However, "Representation and Reality" has neither been unfluential enough nor is it convincing enough for me to recommend it highly.

After reading Chomsky and Fodor's work on language for the past few years, I found this book to be a breath of fresh air. His arguments are sophisticated, but his writing is clear and commonsensical. Being relatively new to philosophy, I found he was easier to understand than Jerry Fodor. For those interested in language and mind I definitely recommend this book.
