Chaotic Logic: Language, Thought, and Reality from the by Ben Goertzel

By Ben Goertzel

This e-book summarizes a community of interrelated principles which i've got built, on and off, over the last 8 or ten years. The underlying topic is the mental interaction of order and chaos. Or, to place it in a different way, the interaction of deduction and induction. i'm going to attempt to clarify the connection among logical, orderly, wakeful, rule-following cause and fluid, self­ organizing, habit-governed, subconscious, chaos-infused instinct. My past books, The constitution of Intelligence and The Evolving brain, in short touched in this dating. yet those books have been basically concerned about different issues: SI with developing a proper language for discussing mentality and its mechanization, and EM with exploring the function of evolution in concept. They danced round the edges of the order/chaos challenge, with no ever absolutely stepping into it. My objective in penning this e-book used to be to move on to the center of psychological approach, "where angels worry to tread" -- to take on the entire sticky concerns which it truly is thought of prudent to prevent: the character of attention, the relation among brain and truth, the justification of trust structures, the relationship among creativity and psychological illness,.... All of those matters are handled the following in a simple and unified means, utilizing a mixture of innovations from my past paintings with rules from chaos conception and intricate platforms science.
