An Interdisciplinary Approach to Cognitive Modelling: A Framework Based on Philosophy and Modern Science


Add your own review!

Overview

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Cognitive Modelling presents a new approach to cognition that challenges long-held views. It systematically develops a broad-based framework to model cognition, which is mathematically equivalent to the emerging ‘quantum-like modelling’ of the human mind. The book argues that a satisfactory physical and philosophical basis of such an approach is missing, a particular issue being the application of quantization to the mind for which there is no empirical evidence as yet. In response to this issue, the book adopts a COM (classical optical modelling) approach, broad-based but mathematically equivalent to quantum-like modelling while avoiding its problematic features. It presents a philosophically informed and empirically motivated mathematical model of cognition, mainly concerning decision-making processes. It also deals with applications to different areas of the social sciences. It will be of interest to scholars and research students interested in the mathematical modelling of cognition and decision-making, and also interdisciplinary researchers interested in broader issues of cognition.

Reviews

'This work is a novel attempt to bring together modern science and Eastern philosophical traditions for interdisciplinary dialogue across different fields. This is particularly important in our times and the manuscript provides insights for cognitive science and philosophy of mind as well. I am sure the book manuscript will emerge as an important guide for future works in these areas and will be widely referenced.' Professor Menas Kafatos, Fletcher Jones Endowed Professor of Computational Physics at Chapman University (CU) and Director of the CU Institute for Earth, Computing, Human and Observing (ECHO), USA
