Lost in the hermeneutic hall of mirrors
Harnad, Stevan (1990) Lost in the hermeneutic hall of mirrors. Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Artificial Intelligence, 2, 321 - 327..
ABSTRACT: Critique of Computationalism as merely projecting hermeneutics (i.e., meaning originating from the mind of an external interpreter) onto otherwise intrinsically meaningless symbols. Projecting an interpretation onto a symbol system results in its being reflected back, in a spuriously self-confirming way.
