Sepand I read this book when I was attending to his class at UC Berkeley. As a Hubert Dreyfus fan I realized that this book hasn't answered to many of the problems Dreyfus proposed in his famous book 'What Computers (Still) Can't Do?' most importantly recognition of the context and frame. If you are looking for a solution for Heidegger/Merleau-Ponty/Wittgenstien objections you won't find it here although there are great ideas in the book.

Tedb0t Oh, cool; I'd love to take a class of his despite being slightly let-down by this book. Actually via this book's website I discovered another book, "The Mind Within the Net," which turned out to be *exactly* what I was looking for insofar as neural nets are concerned.

I still feel like Feldman has some great ideas that could be very fruitful, but something was lacking here.
