Abstract

Thirty years after the publication of Marr’s seminal book Vision (Marr, 1982) the papers in this topic consider the contemporary status of his influential conception of three distinct levels of analysis for information processing systems, and in particular the role of the algorithmic and representational level with its cognitive-level concepts. This level has (either implicitly or explicitly) been downplayed or eliminated both by reductionist neuroscience approaches (from below) that seek to account for behaviour from the implementation level and by Bayesian approaches (from above) that seek to account for behaviour in purely computational-level terms.
