Visualization of the Evolutionary Epistemology process


  1. Phylogenetic view
  2. Social view/Mixed view
  3. Ontogenic view


Why science?

Why visual?


A visualization, even if imperfect, let your mind "rest" on it. It's a part of the cognitive scaffolding that you build to go further. The better is it, the best the affordance it is and thus the further one can go with it.

Phylogenetic view

Not limited to 1 individual but to an entire specie.

the term selected refers to selected by the viewer, hovered.

dynamic indicators (activated when highlighted)

Using a reference based equivalent of BLAST used in taxonomy to build phylogenetic tree ( )

Social view/Mixed view

See the idea developed in Bibliography#influenceviewers. It is more of a social view of EET than an ontogenic or phylogenetic view.

See also

Ontogenic view

Limited to 1 individual organism, evolution of the cognitive scaffolding of an individual.

Example : evolution of my personal concepts tree and new concepts (that could be integrated). Eventually The Origins of Object Knowledge (OUP, May 2009) could also be used as an example.

notes from the 19/01/09

EE as a creative process. Fractal as in sub-process of the social problem solving environment of the EE (each action, epistemic action is itself problem solving).

EE is problem-solving oriented

Can we find fractal patterns in formalized knowledge repository?
