In this introductory chapter we set the stage for Fodor and Pylyshyn's systematicity challenge to connectionist theory, and provide an overview of the chapters included in the volume. We spell out the terms of the disagreement by locating the systematicity debate in the context of the historical precedents and the development of cognitive science in the second half of the twentieth century, identifying a number of central features, and considering potential consequences that the advent of a “post-connectionist” era in the last decade could bring.

Keywords:   Systematicity debate, Cognitive architecture, Post-connectionism
