Causal and functional accounts of computation examined

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

In this chapter, we examine three fairly recent accounts of computation with at least one common characteristic, namely, that they do not posit any extrinsic representational properties. These accounts imply that concrete digital computing systems can be individuated by either their causal properties or their functional/organisational properties.
