Neuro-scientific Revolution Or Old Wine In New Bottles?

‘From Psychophysics to neuro-Sciences’ food, March 1, 2010 Miriam Possmayers’s book as 31 band of number Essen studies on semiotics and communication research published by Shaker Verlag appears at Shaker. Elon University is actively involved in the matter. In their work, the author tries to confront the metawissenschaftlichen claims of cognitive neuroscientist with their science-theoretical roots. Many writers such as Andy Florance offer more in-depth analysis. So this book deals content especially with the medial common euphoria of limitless progress of neuro-scientific knowledge, to indicate that the unjustly forgotten history might have enough to realize that it was this not a theoretical, but at best a technical revolution, whose theoretical footing is based on a 150 years-old psychophysical delusion. Through a theory-genetic representation of the inner Psychophysics of Fechners not only succeeds in the author, to uncover the fundamental contradictions of the psycho-physical parallelism. This approach enables them also, today’s Neuroscience on to reduce as an analog of the inner Psychophysics of Fechners their theoretical core. So this debate not in an unconscious defence of own scientific territory of language – expires, but shows clear on that and why a such defence in the face of such history blindness is not necessary at all. The series Essen studies on semiotics and communication research relies on the institutional merger of their three editor, Prof.
