Title: Process Theories
Subtitle: Crossdisciplinary Studies in Dynamic Categories
Edited By: Johanna Seibt
Description:

Processes constitute the world of human experience - from nature to
cognition to social reality. Yet our philosophical and scientific theories
of nature and experience have traditionally prioritized concepts for static
objects and structures. The essays collected here call for a review of the
role of dynamic categories in the language of theories. They present old
and new descriptive tools for the modelling of dynamic domains, and argue
for the merits of process-based explanations in ontology, cognitive
science, semiotics, linguistics, philosophy of mind, robotics, theoretical
biology, music theory, and philosophy of chemistry and physics. The
collection is of interest to professional researchers in any of these
fields; it establishes - for the very first time - crossdisciplinary
contact among recent process-based research movements and might witness a
conceptual paradigm shift in the making.
