By Werner Rupprecht

​Kognitive Kommunikation dient Menschen und Maschinen zum Wissenserwerb. Der Zuwachs an Wissen besteht dabei in der gewonnenen info der empfangenen Signale. Maschinensprachen und von Menschen gesprochene natürliche Sprachen unterscheiden sich darin, dass die Signale von Maschinensprachen scharf definierte Bedeutungen haben, während die Bedeutungen von Signalen der natürlichen Sprachen in hohem Maß unscharf sind. Werner Rupprecht legt dar, wie unscharfe Bedeutungen in den Hirnen von Menschen entstehen, und dass paradoxerweise wegen dieser Unschärfen Menschen fähig sind, Erkenntnisse zu gewinnen, die Maschinen nicht gelingen. Er erläutert im aspect Zusammenhänge zwischen informationstheoretischer Entropie, thermodynamischer Entropie und Energie, beschreibt die Sinnesorgane von Menschen, die Verarbeitung von Signalen in neuronalen Netzen und Maschinen, die Entwicklung von Medien, insbesondere des Internets, und diskutiert die Rolle eines immateriellen Geistes.

Get Reasons without Persons: Rationality, Identity, and Time PDF

By Brian Hedden

Brian Hedden defends an intensive view in regards to the dating among rationality, own id, and time. at the typical view, own id through the years performs a crucial position in wondering rationality. this is why, at the commonplace view, there are rational norms for the way a person's attitudes and activities at one time may still healthy together with her attitudes and activities at different occasions, norms that follow inside anyone yet no longer throughout people. yet those norms are
problematic. They make what you rationally should think or do depend upon proof approximately your previous that are not a part of your present viewpoint at the international, they usually make rationality rely on arguable, murky metaphysical evidence approximately what binds varied instant snapshots (or 'time-slices') into
a unmarried individual prolonged in time. Hedden takes a special method, treating the connection among diversified time-slices of an identical individual as no varied from the connection among varied humans. For reasons of rational review, a temporally prolonged individual is similar to a gaggle of individuals. The locus of rationality is the time-slice instead of the temporally prolonged agent. Taking an impersonal, time-slice-centric method of rationality yields a unified method of the rationality
of ideals, personal tastes, and activities the place what rationality calls for of you is simply made up our minds by way of your facts, without certain weight given in your previous ideals or actions.

Il politeismo moderno: Saggi sul pensiero del conflitto - download pdf or read online

By Alessandro Dal Lago

“Il politeismo, in questo libro, è in sostanza l’esistenza di conflitti inconciliabili tra ‘punti di vista’ fondamentali o, come avrebbe detto Max Weber, ‘valori’. Con il riferimento al ‘teismo’ nel vocabolo, si intende che i punti vista, in definitiva, sono credenze e non prospettive razionali. Ovviamente, qualcuno potrebbe riconoscere in questa definizione il cosiddetto ‘scontro di civiltà’ di Huntington, ma sarebbe un errore. Weber non intendeva con los angeles parola politeismo il conflitto tra assorted religioni o tradition, sostantivi astratti che in tal senso gli avrebbero fatto orrore, quanto tra prospettive inconciliabili all’interno di una stessa cultura (il riferimento privilegiato period al Kulturkampf, ovvero allo scontro tra cattolici e protestanti nella Germania di advantageous secolo). Mentre un Huntington finisce inevitabilmente – e grossolanamente – according to identificare cultura e religione, in line with Max Weber l’intero Occidente stava diventando politeistico, in quanto incapace di offrire una prospettiva unificata ai suoi abitanti.”

Jan Wöpking's Raum und Wissen: Elemente einer Theorie epistemischen PDF

By Jan Wöpking

Die Monographie untersucht den Gebrauch von Diagrammen zu Erkenntniszwecken. Anhand der Schlüsselszenen von euklidischer Geometrie und spätmittelalterlicher Physik zeigt die Studie, wie Diagramme Räumlichkeit und Regeln, Logik und epistemischen Überschuss, Doppeldeutigkeit und Präzision so verbinden, dass neue Einsichten gewonnen und unbekannte Phänomene erschlossen werden. Zunächst wird erarbeitet, warum konstruierte Diagramme im Allgemeinen mehr Informationen zeigen als zu ihrer Konstruktion aufgewendet werden, mithin einen Erkenntnisüberschuss produzieren. Dieser Überschuss wird gegen eine mächtige bildkritische culture als zentrales und legitimes Prinzip der Figurenbeweise der euklidischen Geometrie identifiziert. Schließlich rekonstruiert die Arbeit, wie Nicole Oresme in seiner bahnbrechenden Konfigurationsdoktrin im 14. Jahrhundert die Diagramme Euklids als epistemisches device einsetzt, um eine universale Quantifizierung aller Naturvorgänge vorzunehmen.
