Pressestimmen

"The issue Fodor writes about is central to the psychology of perception, cognition, and action. It is the central issue for anyone who would seriously study the neurobiology of behavior: Is the mind organized horizontally or vertically or both, and what are the consequences to psychology of proceeding on one assumption or the other? This has been little analyzed and written about. Jerry Fodor has repaired that omission and had done it brilliantly." Alvin Liberman, Yale University, President, Haskins Laboratories "Jerry Fodor's Modularity of Mind is a beginning... [It] is the first major monograph in this century to explore some variations on faculty psychology [and] is the best thing Fodor has done since The Language of Thought, mainly because it takes such a wide sweep and yet manages to concentrate all the arguments upon the central issue in both neuropsychology and information-processing psychology."

Kurzbeschreibung

This study synthesizes current information from the various fields of cognitive science in support of a new and exciting theory of mind. Most psychologists study horizontal processes like memory and information flow; Fodor postulates a vertical and modular psychological organization underlying biologically coherent behaviors. This view of mental architecture is consistent with the historical tradition of faculty psychology while integrating a computational approach to mental processes. One of the most notable aspects of Fodor's work is that it articulates features not only of speculative cognitive architectures but also of current research in artificial intelligence.

Since the two preceding comments are overtly noncritical, I feel it is my duty to point out that Fodor's theories have NOT gone unchallenged. Admittedly, the modulariy hypothesis as defended by Fodor (and in the case of language even more prominently Noam Chomsky) has had historical relevance and led to advances in technical branches like Artificial Intelligence. On the other hand, when it comes to human cognition (as opposed to comparatively simplified computers), the approach has been rather misleading, reducing language to syntax and embracing a very technical notion of language as independent of communication. In fact, the modularity has NOTHING to say about language beyond the word/sentence level or about linguistic meaning. These areas are simply ignored and left to other modules (that other people can deal with). It goes without saying that this enables "theoretical formal elegance", but at what cost?
The heydays of the modulariy hypothesis were the 1980s, and if you are interested in the State of the Art, I suggest that you avoid this track. Note also that the supposedly supporting reference cited in the previous comment is 20 years (!) old, and predates the "decade of the brain" (the 1990s), where research on Cognitive Neuroscience began to become more widespread.
Concerning any proposal as to "how the mind works" in a bioligical or neurophysiological sense, remember that 20 years is A LOT! Even in 2006, neuroimaging (the most likely methodology for gaining more insight) continues to be a crude technique, with laboratory testing being extremely constrained by the size of the machinery. While most studies focus on isolated information processing, those that have attempted to approach more ecologcally valid material (conversations, stories) etc.

Jerry Fodor's "Modularity of Mind" isn't a page turner. Reading it and grasping its content is hard work (for both mind and brain). It is nonetheless worth the struggle because it lays out the basic theory of philosophy of mind (together with Fodor's "Language of Thought", certainly). And - what is more fascinating - it hasn't been seriously challenged since its publication in 1983.
The main tenets of the books are:
1. The mind is in part modular. There are input systems that translate world experience into representations (eg verbal sound waves into concepts, or so). Input systems must have certain (9, in total) properties to count as modules (domain-specificity, informational encapsulation are the most crucial, I think).
2. The central systems, where the output of the input systems (viz mentalese representations, I guess) is computed (processed) isn't modular (since it doesn't have the necessary properties modules should have). In the central systems, we fix our beliefs about the world possibly considering everything we have in mind (which is not very encapsulated, informationally so to say). That "considering everything" Fodor calls "Isotropy" and is the major challenge for connectionism (which still is very hip in cognitive science though it doesn't work as a model of the mind).
The book gives the reader some quite interesting insights into how the mind might work (and a good feeling since Fodor admits that we cannot know).
For those who don't like Fodor's theories: there are some less promising commentaries in Behavioral and Brain Sciences (1985, I think) and some more promising in Garfield 1987 (see especially Higginbotham).

This classic in cognitive science has a great deal to say, but an awkward way of saying it. Author Jerry A. Fodor’s style is academic and dense, a potential barrier to all but the most determined, well-prepared reader. Arcane and brilliant, Fodor intersperses colloquial jests with jargon-burdened exposition, leading one to believe that he could have written a book more accessible to the lay reader had he wished to do so. We find, however, that the book repays the persistent, dedicated reader. The reward is a fascinating exploration of the mind, drawing on the literature of epistemology and psychology, with occasional detours down the rarely explored byways of phrenology.

HASH(0x98b7230c) von 5 Sternen A CLASSIC WORK OF SCHOLARSHIP 20. Oktober 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Fodor's short book made "faculty psychology" respectable again and has generated a large literature in psychology, philosophy, and linguistics. Fodor offers brilliant arguments that the mind has special-purpose perceptual and linguistic modules. A central thesis of Fodor's book is that these modules are "informationally encapsulated" -- that is, the modules do their work without being able to access the beliefs that the person has. Thus in an important sense perception is theory-neutral, because what you believe will not affect what you see, hear, etc. For a contrasting view, read chapter two of Paul Churchland's Scientific Realism and the Plasticity of Perception. By the way, Fodor's book is brilliant, but don't look for the entertainingly malicious flashes of humor that typify many of his essays.

HASH(0x98b72e70) von 5 Sternen Fodor's magnum opus 11. August 2015
Von Mr H F Shevlin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a phenomenal book - probably the finest extended work of empirically informed philosophy of mind of the last fifty years. I enjoy Fodor's other work, but this is his magnum opus. His rich empirical insights are as relevant as ever, and none of the major ideas in the book have been settled one way or another by more recent data (though the debates continue to rage as fiercely as ever). Fodor writes with clarity and style, and presents complex experiments and ideas very appealingly. There's no-one else writing today (except perhaps Ned Block) who manages to pull this off so well. While this book might be a bit of a challenge to a non-philosopher, it's certainly readable, and full of insights. For an undergraduate philosopher of mind, it's positively essential.

HASH(0x98b8ce64) von 5 Sternen Locus classicus in philosophy of psychology 21. August 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book really set the agenda in thinking about cognitive architecture for many approaches in thinking about the mind during the late 80s and 90s. In some ways, it is philosophical synthesis of concrete gains from research science in linguistics and cognitive psychology. But it also articulates the path down which much recent thinking has gone. The issue of modularity is getting hot now, especially with the business about evolutionary psychology. This and Fodor's _Psychosemantics_ are *the* texts of recent theoretical cognitive science (if you ask me). Oh, and it doesn't have too many obscurely humorous bits designed to confuse you, as some other of his books do.

Fodor, stop fodoring!

Joke aside, a good book to get acquainted with if you're interested in different theories in cognitive science.
