|Interpretation: A) Making statements about other statements, whereby new vocabulary may be introduced. If no new vocabulary is introduced, new information can be obtained by changing the syntactic grouping.|
B) In logic, interpretation is the insertion of values (objects) instead of the constants or free variables.
_____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.
Interpretation/Argument/Frith: the fact that the evidence is ambiguous does not mean that there is no correct interpretation.
When our brain conceals the ambiguity, it presents only one interpretation.
Movement/Interpretation/Objective/Intention/Frith: In movements, the internal models are the goals of the action.
Problem: Movements are ambiguous. E.g. I can go to the baker next door or to Patagonia.
Movement/Interpretation: E.g. the person opposite me should repeat everything I do. I raise my left hand, the other person raises the right. Is this a mistake?
E.g. I take my right hand and touch my left ear, the other person takes the left and touches his left ear. Is this a mistake?
N.B.: now to the correct test: in the middle of the table is a big red button. I lean forward and touch it with my forehead. What the other person is doing depends on my hands: if I have chained hands, but the other person does not, he will use his hands, when I have free hands, the other person will use his head.
Movement/Imitation/Interpretation/Frith: For example, a subject should move the arms rhythmically up and down while they are watching another person, moving the arms rhythmically sideways.
This shows that we unconsciously tend to imitate others.
N.B.: when the person moving sideways was replaced by a robot, the unconscious imitation did not happen.
Movement/Action/Brain/Interpretation/Frith: Thesis: in the robot the brain registers only movements, but no actions._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
