It is features such as these that may carry some of these systems beyond what Wiggins refers to as GOFAI.
The subroutines and variables available in GOFAI systems make it relatively easy to nest solutions of sub-problems within solutions to larger problems.
According to Wheeler's understanding of the field's history, this revolutionary twist has been emerging over the last few years as a response to orthodox cognitive science--basically, GOFAI (1) and connectionism, that is, "most cognitive science as we know it" (idem).
In contrast, the new approach is ready to do both: subsume GOFAI by allowing it an authoritative place in offline phenomena research (Wheeler 2005, p.
Times have changed though, and the new GOFAI cannot stick with so-called traditional software.
