# Language of Thought

Last updated December 25, 2021

Can we use language as the method of querying memory?

## # Language of thought hypothesis

• proposes thinking occurs in a mental language, this is called mentalese
• computations in a classical way
• classical computational architecture distinguishes between data-structures and rules/programs which operate on said structures
• neural networks or connectionist networks challenges any argument for mentalese (as they don’t fall under the GOFAI/classical computation category)
