La médecine et les sciences cognitives By Abdelkarim Fourati
Paperback: $26.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
Une révolution scientifique est en cours en médecine, en "science du vivant" et en intelligence artificielle. Après l'invention de l'ordinateur, l’humanité... More > est actuellement en transition d’une logique matière/énergie à une logique d’information/cognition. Cela pourrait engendrer la production d’une nouvelle conception de la science médicale. Ce livre discute ces notions dans le cadre d’une nouvelle théorie que l'auteur a appelée la cognodynamique. En fait, cette transition ne peut s’achever avec succès que par une approche qualitative de l’information/cognition. Autrement dit, il faut une révolution scientifique comparable à celle de Galilée mais dans le sens inverse, de l'étude quantitative du mouvement de la matière vers l'étude qualitative de l'esprit. Ce livre s’adresse aux lecteurs soucieux de la culture scientifique. Il présente une vue globaliste de la "science du vivant" et ses applications médicales après l'introduction de l'ordinateur, en utilisant la méthode historico-critique.< Less

Les Cévennes furent le théâtre de « la guerre des camisards », opposant les partisans de la Réforme, « les protestants », aux troupes catholiques du roi, « les dragons », entre 1702 et 1704-1705, mais dans les faits, la répression dura jusqu'à la Révolution française. Les Cévennes conservent la mémoire de Robert Louis Stevenson, précurseur du tourisme moderne, qui parcourut la région à pied, accompagné d'un âne, au cours de l'année 1878...< Less
