Encapsulates the history of AI: "approximate periods of dominance: (1) Speculative (to 1940), (2) Cybernetic (1940-1955), (3) Symbolic AI (1955-1985), (4) Subsymbolic AI (1985-2010), and (5) Deep Learning (2010-present)."
Disregarding the speculative part, it is Symbolic AI (30 years) that is philosophically distinct from the other 3. "Symbolic AI often goes unrecognized as the most significant attempt to apply logical positivist analysis to reality itself." @AuerbachKeller
