Summary and Info
In Intersensory Origin of Mind Thorne Shipley proposes a fundamental revision of the core of modern psychology. With a serious respect for the history of science, Shipley shows the profound limits of linear, mechanistic and naively reductionistic accounts of the mind, and proposes instead a sensory rationalist position which builds on the principles of emergent evolution. Combining several diverse perspectives, from the physiological optics of Helmholtz, the perceptual science of Kohler, the visual electrophysiology of Hubel/Wiesel to the theories of Dewey, Polanyi, Cassirer, Chomsky and Piaget, Intersensory Origin of Mind is an ambitious synthesis of sensory science. It will need to be read by anyone with an interest in philosophical psychology, the nature of human consciousness and the origin of mind.
