Self-Organizing Natural Intelligence: Issues of Knowing, by Myrna Estep

By Myrna Estep

Self-Organizing common Intelligence brings new medical ways to intelligence study that's at the moment below the impact of principally classical 19th century unmarried causal idea and strategy. This out-dated classical process has led to the single-capacity g-theory, a "central processor," top-down, genetically made up our minds linguistic view of intelligence that's at once contradicted via empirical evidence of human and animal reviews of intelligence.

This ebook proposes, makes use of, and demonstrates the study superiority of a hugely built multidisciplinary concept versions method of intelligence. With conceptual instruments, suggestions and mathematical equipment extra fitted to non-stop, dynamic phenomena of dwelling issues, the complete scope of common intelligence established upon empirical reviews of tangible human and animal event is addressed. effects convey that human and animal intelligence is essentially self-organizing and emergent throughout a spectrum of significant different types of forms of average intelligence, no longer constrained to a unmarried "top down" potential as present proponents of the single-capacity g-theory and IQ procedure aid.

Contrary to the single-capacity verbal concept of intelligence, this paintings argues and indicates proof for 3 significant different types of typical intelligence. Overwhelming empirical facts is given to teach that our figuring out of cognition itself needs to be broadened to incorporate nonverbal instant wisdom as a class of traditional intelligence that's embedded inside sensory and somatosensory-motor procedures that make attainable yet one more classification of intelligence, realizing how.

While most modern theories of intelligence suppose that the brain is fullyyt computational, and likewise think that sensation is cognitively "neutral," having no intentionality, the following empirical proof is gifted from various scientific reports displaying that sure primitive sensory tactics are usually not cognitively impartial, nor do they require a representational language interface with the intention to be obtainable to cognitive (intelligence) strategies.

This quantity describes a rigorous remedy and exhaustive type of traditional intelligence whereas additionally demonstrating a extra sufficient medical and mathematical process than present statistical and psychometric techniques shoring up the out-dated and misused IQ hypothetical build.


Myrna Lynne Estep holds the B.A., M.S., and Ph.D. levels from Indiana collage, Bloomington, the place she additionally taught and the place a lot of the study for this publication used to be initially performed. She has additionally held college positions on the college of Zimbabwe; a department of the collage of Texas; and held a variety of specialist positions with the U.S. govt. She is the writer of various medical and technological papers, books, co-editor of one other, and has carried out reviews in social and political concept affecting girls, minorities, and the bad. Her biography looks in several reference books together with The listing of yank students; a variety of variants of the Marquis who is Who and Who’s Who in technology and Engineering. She used to be elected a member of the consideration Society of Phi Kappa Phi in 1992, and is an lively researcher and author within the behavioral sciences and synthetic intelligence. together with her husband, philosopher-scientist Richard Schoenig, she spends a lot of her time in West Texas and within the excessive San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado.

Recognizing this fact leads to yet another issue implied but not stated above in question 4: Is intelligence found in any human activity unrelated to the use of language and logic? If the answer to that question is yes, then standard IQ tests do not measure it. Where Are the Facts of Intelligence Found? ” Are they found in measures of the central nervous system, in language and logic performance scores on standard IQ tests? Or are the facts of intelligence found distributed throughout one’s knowing how to interact and transact with and transform objects in one’s context or environment?

Though Gardner’s (1983) theory of multiple intelligences is the best known among several of the multiple theories, there are reasons to raise issues with his classification of kinds of intelligence. I will assess many arguments both for and against the single theory view. But I will also take issue with proponents of multiple intelligence theory as well. At minimum, the intelligence research community in general has left undone the substantial theoretical and experimental work necessary to show the scope of intelligence we have in common with the rest of the animal kingdom.

A machine is an object that consists of parts that act in predetermined ways. 8 It is a powerful model for deriving one-way causal chains in efforts to explain the behavior of a thing, or at least some of it. Fig. 1. Single Capacity Mechanistic Effects Model 8 Generally, I use the term “machine” as identical with the concept “algorithm”. 18 1 The Problem of Intelligence The usual intelligence researcher takes an experimentalist’s standpoint in which intelligence is reduced to a single capacity or factor (or to a very small number of such factors) such as g, and the effects are taken as linear and additive.
