On the Origin and Nature of Cognition: A Topological Model of Cognitive Architecture

On the Origin and Nature of Cognition: A Topological Model of Cognitive Architecture by Pradeep J.N. Chhaya
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 335 Pages | ISBN : 3031511042 | 30.1 MB

This monograph is an extension of the earlier monographs dealing with the application of the new modified involuted manifold model. This monograph has two objectives. Firstly, it seeks to integrate neuronal organization with cognitive functionalities. Secondly, it tries to formalize a structural template of cognitive functionalities. It is based on the postulate that cognitive functionalities are essentially natural phenomena and therefore amenable to formal naturalistic description. Therefore, it employs a topological model of spacetime proposed earlier to define a new framework wherein neuronal networks occupy the four-dimensional configurations of spacetime, and cognitive functionalities occupy higher dimensional configurations of spacetime. Using the Darwinian conception of natural selection, the monograph outlines a model of natural selection operating at more than one level.

Design Computing and Cognition '08: Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Design Computing and Cognition by John S. Gero
English | PDF | 2008 | 734 Pages | ISBN : 1402087276 | 58.4 MB

This is the third volume of the new conference series Design Computing and Cognition (DCC) that takes over from and subsumes the successful series Artificial Intelligence in Design (AID) published by Kluwer (now Springer) since 1992. The AID volumes have become standard reference texts for the field. It is expected that the DCC volumes will perform the same role. Design Computing and Cognition’04 and Design Computing and Cognition’06 both edited by John S Gero, were published by Springer.

Active Cognition: Challenges to an Aristotelian Tradition

Active Cognition: Challenges to an Aristotelian Tradition by Véronique Decaix
English | EPUB | 2020 | 198 Pages | ISBN : 3030353036 | 1.19 MB

This edited work draws on a range of contributed expertise to trace the fortune of an Aristotelian thesis over different periods in the history of philosophy. It presents eight cases of direct or indirect challenges to the Aristotelian passive account of human cognition, taking the reader from late antiquity to the 20th century. Chapters analyse the (often indirect) effect of Aristotle’s account of cognition on later periods. In his influential De anima, Aristotle describes human cognition, both sensitive and intellectual, as the reception of a form in the cognitive subject.

Canine Cognition and the Human Bond

Canine Cognition and the Human Bond by Jeffrey R. Stevens
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2023 | 147 Pages | ISBN : 3031297881 | 13.7 MB

Dogs are a valued part of millions of households worldwide. They also serve many functions in human societies from herding livestock to detecting drugs, explosives, or illegal wildlife to providing physical assistance or emotional support to those in need. Yet, in terms of behavior and cognition, dogs have only become a serious subject of scientific study in the last 20 years. Similarly, we have recently witnessed a sharp increase in studies of canine-human interaction, exploring the motivational, emotional, cognitive, physiological, and neural mechanisms of dogs on human psychology and well-being. This book is a collection of chapters stemming from the Nebraska Symposium on Motivation, which focused on Canine Cognition and the Human Bond. The primary goal of this symposium was to bring together researchers from psychology, biology, neuroscience, and anthropology to delve deeper into the canine-human bond. These chapters describe the current state of knowledge from international experts in the fields of canine cognition and canine-human interaction. Bridging these two areas can help us better understand the canine-human bond, potentially improving the lives of both dogs and people.

Thematic Relations: A Study in the Grammar-Cognition Interface (Repost)

Thematic Relations: A Study in the Grammar-Cognition Interface by Mário A. Perini
English | PDF | 2019 | 246 Pages | ISBN : 3030285375 | 2.7 MB

This book presents a proposal to better define thematic relations by exploring the relation between language and cognition. It analyzes the relation between grammatically defined roles such as agent and patient (semantic roles), and elaborate thematic relations (ETRs) actually accessible to language users. It shows that many phenomena previously analyzed as grammatical can be described in a more simple and convenient way by postulating direct connection between syntactic complements and cognitive relations present in the schema evoked by the verb.
