Abstract:

Although cognitive science has obtained abundant data on neural and computational processes, it barely explains such ordinary experiences as recognizing faces, feeling pain, or remembering the past. In this book Sunny Auyang tackles what she calls ""the large pictures of the human mind, "" exploring the relevance of cognitive science findings to everyday mental life. Auyang proposes a model of an ""open mind emerging from the self-organization of infrastructures, "" which she opposes to prevalent models that treat mind as a disembodied brain or computer, subject to the control of external agent.
