David DiSalvo of NeuroNarrative is hosting the 74th edition of the mind/brain carnival Encephalon in fine Flying Circus style. From the positive results of maintaining a sunny disposition (grrr…) to the quantum mechanics of free will and preparing society for the cognitive age, it’s got a very nice slice of reads. Plus some great Monty Python clips!
I particularly liked AK’s Rambling Thoughts piece on Concepts, Cognition and Anthropomorphism, where he takes on the nitty-griity of how the brain achieves conceptual action – a big step away from most Western philosophy, yet in line with ideas explored here as well as research like Barsalou’s on embodiment and perception.
And now go enjoy Encephalon #74.
