Resumen

PEREIRA JUNIOR, Alfredo. The biological nature of the mental information-processing. Trans/Form/Ação [online]. 1991, vol.14, pp.139-153. ISSN 0101-3173.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0101-31731991000100008.

The nature of mental information-processing is studied in the context of the neo-mechanicist program for Biology, from the general form of information-processing in living systems, allosteric interactions, to information-processing in human brain. An instantiation of the self-organizing systems model is suggested, which leads to the hypothesis of the "supercode". This is a mental program, molecularly codified, responsable for, inter alia, linguistic competence. A comparison is done between this hypothesis and Jerry Fodor's "language of thought".

Palabras clave : Information in biology; language of thought; linguistic competence; the mind-brain problem; self-organization; new-mechanicism.
