This thesis deals with the central questions cognitive science needs to tackle. The first chapter provides a general introduction into the subject matter. The second chapter explains the methodology used both by the author of this thesis and by other individuals that contributed to the arguments present in the thesis in one way or another. Chapters three to five go on to deal with the basic building blocks of cognitive science – the central ideas that best describe the endeavor of cognitive science. Every chapter has the same structure. It starts with a general introduction regarding the idea in question, followed by an argument that poses problems for cognitive science, which is in-turn followed by a possible or real counter-argument. Every chapter ends by a small conclusion – a summary and a synthesis of the previous arguments. The final chapter tries to encompass the implications behind the summaries of earlier arguments, as well as provide advice and guidelines for future development and research.
