Ron McClamrock

He works in the philosophy of psychology, including the foundations of artificial intelligence and cognitive science, as well as more broadly in the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of science. He is the author of Existential Cognition: Computational Minds in the World (1995) which argues for the centrality of interactivity with the world for a scientific theory of mind. He also teaches and writes on higher-level causation and explanatory pluralism in the sciences, bounded rationality, and the relationship between phenomenology and the sciences of mind.
