The physical symbol system hypothesis explains how cognitive processes can be realized by a physical system. Recognition, representing pictorial information, thinking, and even processes like intuition, discovery, and learning can be carried out both by human and by artificial symbol systems. The symbol system hypothesis can be extended to explain social interactions of individuals in society, for when enough cultural-historical knowledge is stored in such a system, it should be able to respond to the social situation.
