Autopoiesis, Adaptivity, Teleology, Agency
A proposal for the biological grounding of intrinsic teleology and sense-making through the theory of autopoiesis is critically evaluated. Autopoiesis provides a systemic language for speaking about
Participatory sensemaking An enactive approach to social cognition
As yet, there is no enactive account of social cognition. This paper extends the enactive concept of sense-making into the social domain. It takes as its departure point the process of interaction
Organismically-inspired robotics : homeostatic adaptation and teleology beyond the closed sensorimotor loop
In 1972, and later in 1979, at the peak of the golden era of Good Old Fashioned Artificial Intelligence (GOFAI), the voice of philosopher Hubert Dreyfus made itself heard as one of the few calls
Horizons for the Enactive Mind: Values, Social Interaction, and Play
What is the enactive approach to cognition? Over the last 15 years this banner has grown to become a respectable alternative to traditional frameworks in cognitive science. It is at the same time a
Defining Agency: Individuality, Normativity, Asymmetry, and Spatio-temporality in Action
TLDR
This work defines agency as an autonomous organization that adaptively regulates its coupling with its environment and contributes to sustaining itself as a consequence and finds that spatiality and temporality are the two fundamental domains in which agency spans at different scales.
Participatory sense-making
As yet, there is no enactive account of social cognition. This paper extends the enactive concept of sense-making into the social domain. It takes as its departure point the process of interaction
Evolutionary Robotics: A New Scientific Tool for Studying Cognition
We survey developments in artificial neural networks, in behavior-based robotics, and in evolutionary algorithms that set the stage for evolutionary robotics (ER) in the 1990s. We examine the
