  • Difficult Points of Chess Metaphor in the Theoretical Questions of Language and Mind
    Epistemology and Philosophy of Science 58 (2): 95-112. 2021.
    This review article reveals the structural components of the chess metaphor, which represent in an unusual perspective the properties of a linguistic sign and its connection with mental processes. Strict rule-following and the conventionality of the material plane of expression turn chess into a convenient illustration of a universal linguistic structure. Particular attention is paid to the computer profile of the chess metaphor, since it reflects a whole complex of philosophical problems of com…Read more

    Epistemology and Philosophy of Science 50 (4): 119-134. 2016.
    This paper is aimed to analyze some grounds bridging the explanatory gap in philosophy of mind and linguistic sign theory. It's noted that the etymological ties between the notions of “consciousness", “cognition", “sign" are emphasized in the works on cognitive linguistics. This connection rises from the understanding of the symbolic nature of consciousness and the sign of semiosis as the key cognitive process. On the one hand, it is impossible to realize the communication procedures, knowledge,…Read more

The modern theories of philosophy of mind relying on the theories …Read more

    Critics of Computationalism and semantic aspects of phenomenal consciousness
    Philosphical Probllems of IT and Cyberspace 12 (2): 14-30. 2017.
    This article focuses on the methodological basis for the criticism of the computationalism and “computer metaphor” in the philosophy of cognitive sciences. We suppose that the computational paradigm is the direct consequence of the theoretical confusion of phenomenal and cognitive kinds of experience. Cognitive processes, considered as the forms of computational description, are available for computer modelling. That implies the strong position of the computer metaphor in the neuroscience. In ou…Read more
