Principles of Brain Evolution () - very recent and very comprehensive (with neat. Interest in intelligence dates back thousands of years. But it wasn't until psychologist Alfred Binet was commissioned to identify students who needed educational assistance that the first intelligent quotient (IQ) test was born. Although it has its limitations, and it has many lookalikes that use far less rigorous measurements, Binet's IQ test.
A book about our evolution during 7 million years: ‘On the origin of human intelligence’ Preview The purpose of this book is to complement Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution in the part related to the development of the hominid brain, namely evolution of human intelligence, which hasn’t been explained to this day even by using the. In this video, Richard Dawkins, author of The Selfish Gene discusses how intelligence formed as a by-product of evolution. It was conducted at the the Edinburgh International Book Festival on Aug by Paula Kirby.
Life is an inordinately complex unsolved puzzle. Despite significant theoretical progress, experimental anomalies, paradoxes, and enigmas have revealed paradigmatic limitations. Thus, the advancement of scientific understanding requires new models that resolve fundamental problems. Here, I present a theoretical framework that economically fits evidence accumulated Cited by: 5. On the Origin of Objects is the culmination of Brian Cantwell Smith's decade-long investigation into the philosophical and metaphysical foundations of computation, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science. Based on a sustained critique of the formal tradition that underlies the reigning views, he presents an argument for an embedded, participatory, "irreductionist," metaphysical .

Evolution - Evolution - The cultural impact of evolutionary theory: The theory of evolution makes statements about three different, though related, issues: (1) the fact of evolution—that is, that organisms are related by common descent; (2) evolutionary history—the details of when lineages split from one another and of the changes that occurred in each lineage; and (3) the.
