    "Over the past 500 years, various mechanical models have been used to account for the inner life of men and women. In early modern Europe, the device upon which the model was based might have been a musical instrument, such as a lute: a note from a struck string caused a similar string to resonate (think of the phrase 'she plucked my heartstrings'). In the eighteenth century, natural philosophers appealed to clockwork or balances, and adopted Newton's mechanical languages of forces. In Freudian "Over the past 500 years, various mechanical models have been used to account for the inner life of men and women.

In the eighteenth century, natural philosophers appealed to clockwork or balances, and adopted Newton's mechanical languages of forces. In Freudian psychoanalysis, the imagery was a mix of hydraulics and thermodynamics: unconscious pressure and sexual energies, on the human being as steam engine. Explanations of mental life have often been made by appealing to a machine favoured in that period. Perhaps we should now ask, not whether the mind is in fact a computer, but what was special about the twentieth century that convinced so many that the computer was a good model for the mind."
