Most Helpful Customer Reviews

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Joachim Gruber on February 15, 2014
Format: Hardcover
Joscha Bach, author of this book, presented parts of this -in my opinion- comprehensive treatise at the 30. Chaos Communication Congress, Hamburg, Dec. 29, 2013:

His basic concepts are similar to the ones of Gerald Edelman's "Theory of Neuronal Group Selection", except that -as far as I understand it- Bach
(1) does not introduce neural Darwinism as the model for how the brain selects among entries in our memory (Edelman bases this tenet on the analogy between brain and immune system).
(2) seems not to allow fuzziness (Edelman calls it "degeneracy") of memory entries.
