Enaction: Toward a New Paradigm for Cognitive Science by John Stewart, Olivier Gapenne, Ezequiel A. Di Paolo

By John Stewart, Olivier Gapenne, Ezequiel A. Di Paolo

This publication provides the framework for a brand new, finished method of cognitive technology. The proposed paradigm, enaction, bargains a substitute for cognitive science's classical, first-generation Computational idea of brain (CTM). Enaction, first articulated by way of Varela, Thompson, and Rosch within the Embodied brain (MIT Press, 1991), breaks from CTM's formalisms of data processing and symbolic representations to view cognition as grounded within the sensorimotor dynamics of the interactions among a dwelling organism and its atmosphere. A dwelling organism enacts the area it lives in; its embodied motion on the planet constitutes its belief and thereby grounds its cognition. Enaction bargains a number views in this intriguing new method of embodied cognitive technological know-how. a few chapters provide manifestos for the enaction paradigm; others deal with particular parts of study, together with man made intelligence, developmental psychology, neuroscience, language, phenomenology, and tradition and cognition. 3 issues end up testimony to the originality and specificity of enaction as a paradigm: the relation among first-person lived adventure and third-person ordinary technology; the ambition to supply an encompassing framework acceptable at degrees from the phone to society; and the problems of reflexivity. Taken jointly, the chapters provide not anything much less than the framework for a far-reaching renewal of cognitive science.Contributors Renaud Barbaras, Didier Bottineau, Giovanna Colombetti, Diego Cosmelli, Hanne De Jaegher, Ezequiel A.
