  1. K.L. Neander, "Toward an Informational Teleosemantics", in Millikan and Her Critics, edited by Justine Kingsbury .
    (last updated on 2013/12/04)

    This paper argues that there are response functions. Systems can have the function to produce one thing in response to another. This has consequences for the kind of teleosemantics that can be offered. Contrary to claims made by Millikan and Papineau, sensory representations can have contents that are determined by the functions of sensory systems to respond to stimuli in certain ways. This paper further explores these implications and offers a teleosemantic and yet informational theory for sensory representations. It further offers a solution to the problem of distal content.
