I identify two morals in Hardcastle's book (1995). The
main moral is that scientific investigation can provide an

research, incorporating more dynamical models and relying less on
strictly classical computational models. I focus my critical
attention on the main moral, but also briefly discuss the
binding, consciousness, dynamical system, memory,
