The new enlightenment hypothesis: All learners are rational

  • Rita Nolan (a1)

The proposal to recruit available formal structures to build an algorithmic model of all learning falters on close examination of its essential assumption: that the input and output of the model are propositional in structure. After giving three framework considerations, I describe three possibly fatal problems with this assumption, concluding each with a question that needs answering to avoid fatality.
