Keeping Track of Objects in a Visual Species

  • Jay Schulkin


A pragmatic philosophy of the brain envisions cephalic systems as essential, a foraging set of systems in search of coherence and understanding. This orientation to inquiry bypasses rationalist or sense data empiricism as well as diatribes about foundations. What is emphasized is coherence and links to objects of reference. Diverse forms of appraisal systems have evolved to facilitate approach and avoidance behaviors and experiences and to appraise objects in the context of the organization of action (Gallistel, 1992) within diverse contexts of interaction with others (Jaspers, 1919). After all, cephalic capability at its most basic is about the consumption of glucose but also the endless array of information processing.
