This chapter begins with a review of the reasons for delving into cognitive science. It then considers two rival views of knowledge: the mainstream computational-representational view and the emerging situated-action view. The latter underpins the interactionist, constructivist view of knowledge adopted in this book. However mental representations are retained in some sense by employing Edelman's ‘neural Darwinism’. For a further exploration of cognitive structure, the chapter considers the concept of scripts, and the criticism of it.

Keywords:   knowledge motivation, computational-representational view, situated-action view, neural Darwinism, scripts
