Book description: Technology has long been a helpful aid in human cognitive activities. With its growing sophistication and usage technology is now taking a more intrinsic and active role in human cognition. The shift from an external aid to being an internal component of cognitive processing reflects a revolution in technology, cognition, and their interaction. The creation of such ‘cognitive technologies’ transforms the traditional instrumental function of technology to a constitutive role that shapes and defines cognition itself. This book explores the new horizon of these ‘cognitive technologies’ and their interactions with humans.
book is a stimulating sampler of an extraordinarily important emerging field.
This field will have profound effects not only on how we humans think, feel and
behave - but also on what we humans are. Technology can no longer be considered
simply a product of human endeavor or a subject of study, but must be
understood as providing a context within which we live and function. The
chapters herein are of interest to psychologists, computer scientists,
neuroscientists and philosophers, and cannot help but open eyes to new
possibilities and new realities.”
Professor Stephen M. Kosslyn, Head of Psychology,
“It used to be clear that human cognition was
one thing and that technology was another. But in our cyber-era of global
networks, multimedia, robots and tools that extend the powers of our eyes,
hands and brains it is becoming clear that cognition and technology are much
more profoundly interconnected and interactive than we had thought: The demands
of our evolutionary past shaped our brains and our cognitive capacities, but
now the "tools" we create with those cognitive capacities are drawing
upon and unleashing cognitive capacities we did not even know we had. The
boundary between what our brains are doing and what our brain-made technology
is doing is dissolving. This volume explores this new hybrid, symbiotic world,
with chapters by many of its front-line contributors.”
Professor Wendy Hall, Head of Electronics and Computer Science,
“This book explores the ways in which
cognitive technologies not only assist humans in their cognitive tasks, but
actually become part and parcel of our cognitive activity. Does this intimate
relationship bring about significant changes in the scope and nature of human
cognition? is the question raised in the book. The philosophical and historical
significance of an exploration of this issue in the light of the most recent
technological developments is immense; for it addresses, ultimately, the
central epistemological question of how our knowing capacity can be improved
(or hampered) by the tools our knowing capacity itself develops. For the first
time, technology is here envisaged not as a peripheral tool vis-à-vis
cognition, but as touching its very kernel.”
Professor Marcelo Dascal, Department of Philosophy,
