  • Phil Rimmer,

    Never heard of neuroconstructivism before.
    In a brief formula, what is it?

    258 Phil Rimmer,

    Of course I´m well aware of that, I didn´t read the book, but there´s even a french matematician (doing a job of ethnologist/anthropologist) that visited several tribes to aknowledge their mathematical concepts which are limited,.These traditional cultures don´t even have written language, only oral tradition, not to men…[Read more]

    besides, somethings the child mantains as propper logic that´s not according to adapt to a new logic is also necessary to the development of the child,

    I mean

    sometimes the child mantains a logic that´s not adapted to a new situation, but this “error” is also necessary to the development of the child,

    (I wrote it in a hurry).

    Of course k…[Read more]

    Logic is truly learned and is not innate.

    Logical development is part of ontological development (the way a child gains experience can can better figure out how things workout, even the concept of randomness, but those processses are not random, they are programmed philogenetically (no psychologist would think otherwise and developmental…[Read more]

    Logic is truly learned and is not innate. (There isn’t a single,
    strictly logical, in the Boolean sense, neuronal relationship (…)
    Phil Rimmer

    So we truly are blank slates afterall, why do you advocate constructivism then? Why does cognitive ethology focus the philogenetic skills for learning of each species?

    “This schematism of our understanding in regard to phenomena and their mere form, is an art, hidden in the depths of the human soul, whose true modes of action we shall only with difficulty discover and unveil. ”

    Kant aknowledges:

    the “schematism of our understanding, in relation to phenomena and its mere form, is an occult art in the depths of the human soul, whose secret of operation we can hardly ever pull out of nature and expose before our eyes” -Kant

    While Piaget made of it science.

    Logic structures of thought in action before our…[Read more]

    Has neuroscience dismissed the idea of ‘the self’? There is no self,
    no ‘I’, only a flickering illusion. So claim many neuroscientists and
    philosophers. Alan

    I´ve seen it too, but couldn´t watch, the sound was awful, I´ll try again.
    I´m sorry to mention, but these neuroscientists look from another generation.
    When Antonio Damasio th…[Read more]

    It´s better now, I hope:

    “(…) As a sociologist, Tocqueville belongs to the lineage of Montesquieu.

    Those “a priori” structures (cognitive structures) can be affected structurally, for instances in a “wolf boy”, so those structures are not static.

    A piece of Tocqueville´s thought that apparently has nothing to do with the comparissom Kant/Piaget, google translated:

    Space (and time) are pure forms of sensibility according to Kant, that seems correct to me, not elaborate concepts of historical time, of physics, neurobiology which are elaborated knowledge.
    In a way, we may have a priori forms of sensibility, structures that format our knowledge, psychological developmental stages in a certain way shows that…[Read more]

    “Object” of knowledge, not object-toy- as a child perceives in space.
    “Object” of a science (the knowledge that a particular science aims to achieve) is defined by formal logic, not the object that a child perceives in space.

    Two different definitions of “object”, the former too concrete, the second abstract.

    To the Mods,

    Thank you for retrieving my comment (I was impatient).
    Sorry but the previous comment has language failures as far as I had no opportunity to correct them (probably it still has, but please delete the previous comment).

    Thank you.

    Here it goes again with the necessary correction I hope:

    SCIENTISTS CONCERNED WITH THE SUBJECTIVITY THEY INTRICE IN SCIENCE

    To insist that externality, which is all that is meant by space in
    this context (in case you haven’t figured that out) Dan

    It seems to me that it is you that cannot figure it out that we are talking about two “objects” of knowledge:
    -spatial cognition;
    -physical world time and space .

    Reality is not a synthesis “object”/subject despite t…[Read more]

    Cognitive neuroscientists are now suggesting that spatial cognition is
    a complex interaction of multiple brain circuits in parallel that make
    use of both allocentric and egocentric processing of the external
    world. A pivotally important concept in understanding spatial
    cognition has been the investigation of representation in the…
