Understanding Computers and Cognition ePub and PDF Available
So far this is an absolutely fascinating study... The authors -concerned with current theories for determing artificial intelligence- begin by identifying our "traditional approach" to science and scholarship based on rational inquiry, particularly the idea that we humans build and maintain cognitive maps of reality and then attempt to harmonize those maps with the world around them. They follow a Chilean neurobiologist named Humberto R. Maturana who sees the behavior of humans in terms of our "mechanistic structure-determined systems." (which strongly de-emphasizes rationality)
They support their perspectives by way of Hans-Georg Gadamer and Martin Heidegger, and do so quite compellingly.
So far (I'm currently on p.51) the chapter on "Cognition as a Biological Phenomenon" has been the most exciting. I happened to have a chance to mention this work to Dr. John Samples -a specialist in Glaucoma- while my wife was having her blindness documented (for her citizenship paperwork) and he pointed me to an article in the May 2011 issue of Scientific American; "The Hidden Organ in our Eyes" by Ignacio Provencio. This article highlights new research indicating that our eyes not only "take in" information via the rods & cones but also from the ganglion cells... and that even the blind will often be aware of the circadian rhythms (night & day). This seems to show a biological system that completely by-passes cognitive thought.

more when I finish...
