Computational cognitive epigenetics
Research output: Contribution to journal › Book/Film/Article review
Jablonka & Lamb (J&L) refer only implicitly to aspects of cognitive competence that preceded both evolution of human language and language learning in children. These aspects are important for evolution and development but need to be understood using the design-stance, which the book adopts only for molecular and genetic processes, not for behavioural and symbolic processes. Design-based analyses reveal more routes from genome to behaviour than J&L seem to have considered. This both points to gaps in out understanding of evolution and epigenetic processes and may lead to possible ways of filling the gaps.
