This ebook treats reminiscence and figuring out on degrees, at the phenomenological point of expertise, on which a idea of dynamic conceptual semantics is equipped, and at the neuro-connectionist point, which helps the capacities of thought formation, remembering, and figuring out. A neuro-connectionist circuit structure of a optimistic reminiscence is built within which figuring out and remembering are modelled according to the constituent constructions of a dynamic conceptual semantics. cognizance emerges via circuit activation among conceptual symptoms and episodic indices with the sensory-motor, emotional, and proprioceptual parts.
This concept of suggestion formation, remembering, and figuring out is utilized to Proust’s A l. a. recherche du temps perdu , with exact awareness to the author’s tours into philosophical and aesthetic concerns. below this attitude, Proust’s paintings may be obvious as an inventive exploration into our ability of figuring out, wherein the subconscious, the reminiscence, is exteriorized in cognizance through providing the skilled episodes within the conceptual order of similarity and contiguity via our ability of thought formation.

Sample text

We have to assume such a development of temporal and spatial concepts because without a basis in our feeling of bodily activity we never could experience and thus be conscious of space-time order. We have assumed that the sensorial, proprioceptional, emotional, and (pre-) motor areas in our brain contain the neurons that are dedicated to produce feelings that are the phenomenal basis for being aware of something in a conscious manner. The indicators and indices themselves, together with their connections, merely form a system of pointers that function via activation going along the established connections.

The whole system of pointers would not mean anything if it were not for the inclusion of the areas in the brain dedicated to phenomenal quality, namely the sensorial, motor, proprioceptional, and emotional fields. They make the connection to the world of bodies, objects, and episodes by being primarily affected by this world in certain ways, and by having effects on this world. e. the systems of indicators, indices, and their connections. e. the conceptual, sensorial, motor, emotional, and proprioceptional areas, and the memory areas; and by connecting to linguistically specialized areas, they give rise to the appropriate linguistic representations, and in turn can be re-activated via the input of linguistic utterances.

By interaction circuits between indicators in these areas and indices in the historical memory we perceive and imagine episodes (linguistic as well as situational ones). In the Cognitive Science literature, the close connection between the hippocampus and the amygdala, the emotion-field, has been investigated, among others, in psychological and neurological research about the role of strong emotions, affections, and arousal in consolidating memories of episodes, especially as those that get a place in the narratives of the autobiographic memory.
