Accumulation of not completed modules against each other - mind not = brain, but activity of the brain, but not the only one: the brain also transforms fat - seeing/thinking/feeling: information processing.
Mind/Fodor: Module - PinkerVs: too delimited - better: Chomsky: is the "mental organ".
Mind: Minsky: society with agents - Dennett: large collection of partially finished designs - no "President" - PinkerVsDennett: the agents are hierarchical.
