Computation, Philosophy: among others, the hypothesis that the brain processes signals by algorithms. It is the question of how distinct a mapping relation must be or can ever be between unspecified symbols. Another problem is how far both sides have to be designed semantically.

Computation IV 179
Computation/Fodor/Lepore: Thesis: causal relationships reconstruct inferential relations. This is considered to be the hope of an association of semantics with psychology - but without a causal theory of analyticity this strategy is not available for a philosopher who connects the meaning with the inferential role in an analytical inference - (CRT ) - E.g. "brown cows are dangerous" here one must recognize that this is not analytic.
