From Embodiments Back to their Minds: An Affective Abstraction

Zippora Arzi-Gonczarowski

At the intersection of cognitive science and robotics are, among others, implementational issues that entail insights into the nature of embodied intelligence. This paper discusses one such example issue. It is argued that by explicitly entering physical robustness and perseverance of action into a formal cognitive theory, a wide range of behavioral, emotional, and affective phenomena can be inferred. In that case they are intertwined naturally with other intelligent phenomena, not as a shallow artificial patch, but rather as an essential part of a surviving intelligence.
