Neither Brain Nor Ghost - opis produktu:

A rejection of both dualism and the mindbrain identity theory arguing that the mind is best understood as a behavioural field that fluctuates within the brainbodyworld nexus In this highly original work Teed Rockwell rejects both dualism and the mindbrain identity theory He proposes instead that mental phenomena emerge not merely from brain activity but from an interacting nexus of brain body and world The mind can be seen not as an organ within a body but as a behavioural field that fluctuates within this brainbodyworld nexus If we reject the dominant form of the mindbrain identity theory which Rockwell calls Cartesian materialism distinct from Daniel Dennetts concept of the same name and accept this new alternative then many philosophical and scientific problems can be solved Other philosophers have flirted with these ideas including Dewey Heidegger Putnam Millikan and Dennett But Rockwell goes father than these tentative speculations and offers a detailed alternative to the dominant philosophical view applying pragmatist insights to contemporary scientific and philosophical problems Rockwell shows that neuroscience no longer supports the mindbrain identity theory because the brain cannot be isolated from the rest of the nervous system moreover there is evidence that the mind is hormonal as well as neural These data and Rockwells reanalysis of the concept of causality show why the borders of mental embodiment cannot be neatly drawn at the skull or even at the skin Rockwell then demonstrates how his proposed view of the mind can resolve paradoxes engendered by the mindbrain identity theory in such fields as neuroscience artificial intelligence epistemology and philosophy of language Finally he argues that understanding the mind as a behavioural field supports the new cognitive science paradigm of dynamic systems theory DST
