Argues that the idea of the mind as an information processor has led psychology away from seeing the mind as a creator of meanings.
Only by breaking out of the limitations of a computational model of mind can we grasp the interaction through which mind constitutes and is constituted by culture.

Review by fncymcgee
Decent. A guy who knows how to stick to an outline. Seriously, some great, groundbreaking ideas stated in a straightforward and accessible way... for an academic text, that is. What I wouldn't give to have a novel on my reading list.
