|Cognition: cognition means processing of information by a human, animal or artificial system. Since information flows through all perceptual organs, uniform processing is to be assumed only on the lowest level of symbols. Examples of cognition are perception, learning, speech recognition, problem solving. Cognitions can run unconsciously._____________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. |
Christopher Peacocke on Cognition - Dictionary of Arguments
Def cognitive priority: a concept is not conceivable without the other, but not the same as definitional priority - eg red* (field of view) without red is possible, but being red can be defined only by red* (field of view) -> Kaplan: character : is the same for red and reduv - that is what is primarily of red* - cognitive and definitional priority must not coincide - it may be that a concept has definitional priority over a second concept, but the second has cognitive priority over the first.
