Grainger & Jacobs (1998) argue that the problems facing
connectionism discussed in my target article (Green 1998) can be
overcome by switching to a localist connectionist perspective. I
question whether the cost of doing so outweighs the disadvantages
of staying with the parallel distributed processing approach to
connectionist cognitive science.
