From the Publisher"In densely argued and elegant prose, Jean-Pierre Dupuy shows that the roots of contemporary cognitive science lay in the cybernetic paradigm developed after World War II. Excavating this history, especially its philosophical implications, uncovers missed opportunities that can, Dupuy suggests, rescue cognitive science from the limitations of its computational worldview.
Thought-provoking and illuminating, On the Origins of Cognitive Science is essential reading for anyone interested in cybernetics and its many progeny, cognitive science, and contemporary philosophy of mind." N.
