Abstract

It is argued that our ordinary concepts of mind are both implicitlybased on architecturalpresuppositions and also cluster concepts. By showing that differentinformationprocessing architectures support different classes of possible concepts,and that clusterconcepts have inherent indeterminacy that can be reduced in differentways for differentpurposes we point the way to a research programme that promises importantconceptualclarification in disciplines concerned with what minds are, how theyevolved, howthey can go wrong, and how new types can be made, e.g. philosophy,neuroscience,psychology, biology and artificial intelligence.
