Essays In Group-Cognitive Science By Gerry Stahl
eBook (PDF): $0.00
These essays argue for methodological approaches based on group cognition theory as a scientifically sound basis for CSCL research. They take different approaches to describing a science and/or... More > theory of group cognition as an approach to CSCL research. The book includes detailed coding schemes, which take into account the sequentiality of group interaction as formulated in conversation analysis. They also illustrate and discuss different methodological approaches I have explored. Part A of the volume consists of two introductions to group-cognitive science as a critique of traditional cognitive science; Part B includes discussions of the theory of group cognition, from different perspectives; and Part C presents concrete case studies and documents coding schemes that were developed within the VMT Project.< Less

Marx & Heidegger By Gerry Stahl

This doctoral dissertation in philosophy at Northwestern University considers the two most important philosophers of the modern age. I conducted my research during three years in Germany: at... More > Heidelberg, where Heidegger’s work was continued, and at Frankfurt, where critical theory extended Marx’ thinking. In recent years, I have applied conceptual and methodological perspectives from Marx and Heidegger to the theory of CSCL. In particular, Marx countered the ideology of individualism by analyzing social structures and interpersonal interactions at different units of analysis than the individual person. Heidegger also questioned the traditional ontology of natural objects with innate attributes by proposing dynamic interactive processes of beings in their ecological context. Today, the philosophies of Marx and Heidegger are still extremely relevant—provided one adapts them to the current socio-historical context and adjusts each to the implicit criticisms of the other.< Less

More > Support of Cooperative Design” and was defended on August 5, 1993. The dissertation explored the implications of the theory of tacit knowledge for the problem of computer capture of design rationale. It discussed a software system for design by teams of NASA designers. The computer environment captured design ideas in a flexible system of professional perspectives. This research led to explorations after graduation in prototyping collaboration software incorporating mechanisms to support perspectives and negotiation.< Less

Some chapters are written for a broad audience, others are oriented more toward readers familiar with philosophic... More > discourse. The history of the concept of intersubjectivity is traced historically and the constitution of group cognition is described in some detail, with illustrations from case studies of VMT usage by student groups. In particular, the discussion of philosophy of group cognition tackles the following questions: a. What is the nature of group cognition? b. What conditions make group cognition possible? The philosophy of group cognition is presented as founding a paradigm of CSCL research, which contrasts with traditional educational psychology.< Less
