Reclaiming Cognition: The Primacy of Action, Intention and Emotion (Journal of Consciousness Studies)

Walter J. Freeman; Rafael Nunez

Traditional cognitive science ('cognitivism') is Cartesian in the sense that it takes as fundamental the distinction between the mind and the world. This leads to the claim that cognition is representational and best explained by classical AI and computational theory. The authors in this volume develop a critique of cognitivism and introduce an alternative approach -- which owes more to evolutionary biology, embodied robotics, phenomenology and dynamical systems.
