ShipstarShipstar

Science fiction masters Larry Niven (Ringworld) and Gregory Benford (Timescape) continue the thrilling adventure of a human expedition to another star system that is jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure cupping a star, with a habitable area equivalent to many millions of Earths. And which, tantalizingly, is on a direct path heading toward the same system the human ship is to colonize.

His views are known as "pragmatism," which emphasizes action and results. Here philosophy isn't a system of beliefs but a practical, empirical method of inquiry.

From Action to Language via the Mirror Neuron System

From action to language via the mirror neuron systemFrom action to language via the mirror neuron system Mirror neurons may hold the brain’s key to social interaction: each coding not only a particular action or emotion, but also the recognition of that action or emotion in others. The Mirror System Hypothesis adds an evolutionary arrow to the story: from the mirror system for hand actions, shared with monkeys and chimpanzees, to the uniquely human mirror system for language. In this volume, written to be accessible to a wide audience, experts from child development, computer science, linguistics, neuroscience, primatology, and robotics present and analyze the mirror system and show how studies of action and language can illuminate each other.
