The discussion in this article takes its point of departure in the generally accepted position of cognition-oriented scientists that intelligent behaviour requires an organism/formalism, which can abstract information from the environment. By examining some operationalised schema models the author shows to what extent these have been capable of explaining the development of behaviourally meaningful cognitive functions. The discussion of the models is oriented towards techniques for specifying...

Development into a high technology society implies both the enjoyment of tangible benefits and the discomfort of rising costs as regards the ecological pollution and the degradation of the quality of life. This brings forth the need for an assessment of the consequences for every-day life. This article focuses on the need for an assessment of oneâs own possibility to live in various feasible environmental settings. These have been projected by means of a Behaviour model, a Humanist model, and...

In a number of preceding articles having appeared in this series it has been demonstrated that the AaO paradigm can be used to develop a cognitive helical structure. The present article advances the process to the forth of five phases. Of the four dependent variables emerging at this stage, two will be discussed, namely (1) zero processing and (2) variations in form. The other two will be presented in a forthcoming article. A short introduction gives some of the basics that govern the process....

In this article, understanding is discussed with reference to an Agent-action-Objective model. The formalism developed controls the processes of differentiation and integration underlying understanding. The starting point is a culturally agreed-on expectancy or prescription, which defines a particular form of understanding. Central to an investigation of how scientists model understanding is how they conceive symbols. The collective cognitive imperative in the scientific community states that...

The article is based on the string-hypothesis, which has important scientific consequences. Science has meant to associate the notion of number with the strict operation of counting. However, recent account of string-theoretical approaches is sharply distinguishing number from magnitude. In studying spinning strings in the context of language, it is shown that rotation is a valid concept. For the descrip­tion of rotating strings, super strings and super symmetries, fitness values are produced...

The foundations of knowledge by tradition have been treated analytically and knowledge has been characterized as a theoretical subject. This article introduces a steering mechanism as the prerequisite for a study of knowledge work and mainte-nance on empirical grounds. Knowledge is treated synthetically, that is, as something that exists only through the individualâs cooperation with its environment, which implies that criteria can be formulated for the isolation of knowledge processes....
