Fodor/LeporeVsConnecionsm: the connectionists draw charts in which the labels (name of the node) say what the intentional interpretation is supposed to be - but no theory explains how the node came to its label. Fodor/LeporeVsChurchland: Churchland makes the same mistake - this is just semantics by stipulation. It does not matter whether semantics is postulated for points or entire dimensions.

Representation/neurophysiological/mind/brain/Fodor/LeporeVsChurchland: colors are not represented as frequencies - the brain represents red things as red and aunts as aunts! - (Not as objects with certain psychophysical properties) - otherwise we could find out anything with introspection - there are very different interpretations of its charts possible.
