The Cognitive Equation

  • Ben Goertzel
Part of the International Federation for Systems Research International Series on Systems Science and Engineering book series (IFSR, volume 9)


To anyone trained in physical science, the overall impression made by psychology and neuroscience is one of incredible messiness. So many different chemical compounds, so many different neural subsystems, so many different psychic dysfunctions, so many different components of intelligence, perception, control.... And no overarching conceptual framework in which all aspects come together to form a unified whole. No underlying equation except those of physics and chemistry, which refer to a level incomprehensibly lower than that of thoughts, emotions and beliefs. No cognitive law of motion.
