Fascinating and innovative approach to cognitive science,
This review is from: Vehicles: Experiments in Synthetic Psychology (Bradford Books) (Paperback)
Braitenberg's small book provides an unique approach to the attempt to understand human cognitive processes. The appraoch is reductionist (in the best sense of the word) whilst at the same time employing his rule of 'downhill analysis and uphill synthesis'. This rule allows Braitenberg to explain features of human cognition by gradual, easily understood, steps from simpler stages.
An excellent read for anyone interested in cognition or evolution.
