About

Although cognitive science has become a topic of public debate, fundamental questions remain about its relationship with the mind and, in turn, about the relationship of the mind with the brain. If we accept the functionalist computational metaphor, the details of the mental processes underlying biology become irrelevant. The same happens with the problem of subjectivity: though the subjective experience is at the center of the human being, its study must be abandoned in order to adapt to computationalism. Secondly, despite the fact that billions of euros are invested, neuroscience does not progress as quickly as expected.

Students are invited to an alternative approach based on dynamic systems, which eventually finds a comprehensive formalism in quantum field theory. Actually, the question of the relations between quantum mechanics and the theory of mind requires specific attention, as well as the AI.... [-]
