For this reason, the purpose of simulation in the natural sciences, at least from the days of Jacques de Vaucanson (1709-1782), the great artificer of the early eighteenth century, is to understand the real systems that are being simulated, not to produce a program that satisfies some performance criterion or operational test. If, for example, both people and a computer program pass some variety of the Turing test for human intelligence (the modern counterpart of the very sophisticated Cartesian test), the crucial question is whether the success of the program tells us anything about humans.

It should perhaps be mentioned here that the concept of 'organic form' (opposed to 'mechanical form') had an impact well beyond literature (cf. Ritterbush 1972). 59 See Chomsky (1973: 405, 1987c: 155), Marr (1977: 130; 1982: 28), Jackendoff (1987, chs. 9 and 10). Page 35 beyond the horizons of current inquiry,' in Chomsky's view. 'Perhaps it may be possible,' Chomsky continues, to sketch the bare outlines of a general cognitive psychology that will attempt to determine the structural properties of specific 'mental organs' and their modes of integration, and to propose biological universals governing these systems, thus laying the foundations for a significant theory of human [mental growth] in various domains.
