Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers/5(6). We organisms are sensorimotor systems. The things in the world come in contact with our sensory surfaces, and we interact with them based on what that sensorimotor contact “affords”.

All of our categories consist in ways we behave differently toward different kinds of things -- things we do or don’t eat, mate-with, or flee-from, or the things that we describe, through our.

A proposal for a categorization of cognition based on core properties of the constituent processes that integrates theory and empirical findings across domains. All sciences need ways to classify the phenomena they investigate; chemistry has the periodic table and biology a taxonomic system for classifying life forms.

These classification schemes depend on conceptual coherence.

The Handbook of Categorization in Cognitive Science provides just the sort of interdisciplinary approach that is necessary to synthesize knowledge from the different fields and provide the basis for future innovation." Professor Bernard Comrie, Department of Linguistics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Germany.

Handbook of Categorization in Cognitive Science, Second Edition presents the study of categories and the process of categorization as viewed through the lens of the founding disciplines of the cognitive sciences, and how the study of categorization has long been at the core of each of these disciplines.

This book proposes a categorization of cognition based on core properties of constituent processes, recognizing correspondences between cognitive processes with similar underlying structure but different surface properties.

These correspondences are verified mathematically and shown not to be merely coincidental. Categorization, the basic cognitive process of arranging objects into categories, is a fundamental process in human and machine intelligence and is central to investigations and research in cognitive science.

Until now, categorization has been approached from singular disciplinary perspectives with little overlap or communication between the disciplines involved (Linguistics. Handbook of Categorization in Cognitive Science, Second Edition presents the study of categories and the process of categorization as viewed through the lens of the founding disciplines of the cognitive sciences, and how the study of categorization has long been at the core of each of these disciplines.

The literature on categorization reveals there is a plethora of. principles that are proposed to underlie categorization systems. The second part shows the way in which these principles appear to result in a basic and primary level of categorization in the levels of abstraction in a taxonomy.

Psychological studies of categorization often assume that all concepts are of the same general kind, and are operated on by the same kind of categorization process.

The authors argue against this unitary view, and for the existence of qualitatively different categorization processes, particularly a distinction between categorizing an item by applying a category-defining rule to Cited by:   Harnad, Stevan () To Cognize is to Categorize: Cognition is Categorization.

Introduction. Categorization is a crucial ability for humans and nonhuman animals (hereafter, animals) and a focus of research (e.g., humans [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8]; animals [9,10,11,12,13,14]).Forming psychological equivalence classes—categories—allows consistent, adaptive behavior toward ecologically equivalent objects that have imperfect perceptual by: 8.

He has published over peer-reviewed articles, and edited two books (with Elsevier) on cognition and consciousness, and on categorization, and a book on the origins of language (Benjamins). He is the current editor of Brain and Cognition (Elsevier), and past editor of Journal of Neurolinguistics (Elsevier).

Based on the author's important Fitts Lectures, this book details a set of psychological concepts and principles that offers a unified interpretation of a wide variety of memory, categorization, and decision-making phenomena. These phenomena are explained via two families of models established by the book: a storage-retrieval model and an adaptive network model.

This book encompasses the behavior and mentality of nonhuman as well as human animals and a full range of evolutionary approaches.

Rather than a collection by and for the like-minded, it is a debate about how evolutionary processes have shaped cognition. In the last decade, "evolutionary psychology" has come to refer exclusively to research on human mentality and.

Smith (eds.), Readings in Cognitive Science, a Perspective From Psychology and Artificial by: The Varieties of Categorization and the Perception-Cognition Debate Our experience of the world typically makes us aware of a wide variety of properties of objects, ranging from their color and shape to their identity and function.

In this paper, I use the notion of categorization to explore these various forms of awareness.Topics include Pavlovian and instrumental conditioning, discrimination learning, and categorization. The remainder of the book focuses on animal cognition and covers such topics as memory, navigation, social learning, language and communication, and .
