Marvin Minsky on Thinking - Dictionary of Arguments

Münch III 99
Thinking/Minsky: I do not believe that sentences must lead to visual images.
III 100
Thinking/Bartlett: thinking is biologically older than the image forming process. But although younger, and higher developed, it does not supplant the method of images.
Thinking increases the risk of remaining attached to generalities.
III 125
Thinking/Minsky: different viewpoints usually follow each other.
III 130
"Proximity"/simulation/Minsky: such terms are too important for our everyday life to give them up because they cannot be axiomatized.
Thinking/Minsky: thinking cannot get far without conclusions.

Marvin Minsky, “A framework for representing knowledge” in: John Haugeland (Ed) Mind, design, Montgomery 1981, pp. 95-128

Minsky I 64
Thinking/communication/Minsky: Rich meaning-networks (…) give you many different ways to go: if you can't solve a problem one way, you can try another. True, too many indiscriminate connections will turn a mind to mush. But well-connected meaning-structures let you turn ideas around in your mind, to consider alternatives and envision things from many perspectives until you find one that works. And that's what we mean by thinking! >Meaning/Minsky.
Understanding/Minsky: The secret of what anything means to us depends on how we've connected it to all the other things we know. That's why it's almost always wrong to seek the real meaning of anything. A thing with just one meaning has scarcely any meaning at all. >Meaning/Minsky, >Communication/Minsky.
