    In Humanist 15.590 I recommended the book,

    Winograd, Terry and Fernando Flores, Understanding Computers and Cognition:
    A New Foundation for Design, (220 pp.) Norwood, NJ: Ablex, 1986. Paperback
    issued by Addison-Wesley, 1987.

    The following are noted on his homepage (ironically, accents not surviving
    Humanist, but then note his approach to Japanese, which none here have yet
    protested the like of):

    French: L'intelligence Artificielle en Question, Paris: Presses
    Universitaire de France, 1989.
    German: Erkenntnis Maschinen Verstehen, Berlin: Rotbuch Verlag, 1989
    Italian: Calcolatori e Conoscenza: Un Nuovo Approccio ala Progettazione
    delle Tecnologie dell'Informazione, Milano: Arnoldo Mondadori, 1987.
    Japanese: (Understanding Computers and Cognition), Tokyo: Sangyo-Tosho, 1989.
    Spanish: Hacia la Comprension de la Informatica y la Cognicion: Ordenadores
    y concomiento: fundamentos para el diseno del siglo XXI, Editorial Hispano
    Europea, 1989.

    Now there are many more of us with no good excuse not to read this
    excellent book.

    Yours helpfully,
