The Harmonic Mind is a work of remarkable scope. Smolensky, Legendre, and their coauthors elaborate the connectionist foundations of optimality theory and explore the multifaceted consequences of the cognitive architecture they posit. Their investigations touch on an extraordinary range of linguistic, computational, psychological, mathematical, and philosophical issues of central importance to the scientific study of language.
