Johannes von Kries on Cognition

By Guido Fioretti


Johannes von Kries's peculiar views on probability rest on insights that make him a forerunner of the "connectionist revolution" that swept Cognitive Science in the 1980s. In this chapter I illustrate Kries's "synchytic judgements" along with the late Wittgenstein's concept of "family resemblance" for the meaning of words, and compare them with the understanding of mental categories brought about by connectionism
