Mental process involves a large variety of computational problems. It is not entirely implausible that the mind deals with each of them in a unique, contextspecific way. But, unlike Minsky and many cognitive scientists, I do not believe this to be the case. Certainly, the mind contains a huge number of specialpurpose procedures. But nearly all the computational problems associated with mental process can be formulated as optimization problems. And I propose that, by and large, there is one general methodology according to which these optimization problems are solved.
