I am new to blogging, so I’m not sure how this will go.
I expect to blog on a variety of topics. However, quite a few of them will be related to the issue of the human mind (cognitive science, philosophy of mind, Artificial Intelligence, etc). I have approached this topic from the perspective of “how could the mind have arisen as a product of evolution?”, whereas it seems to me that most work on the mind has a more creationist (“How would I go about designing a mind?”) way of looking at things.
I am a mathematician and a semi-retired professor of computer science. Presumably that background has influenced my perspective.
