Signals evolution, learning, & information by Brian Skyrms ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 518 libraries worldwide
Brian Skyrms presents a fascinating exploration of how fundamental signals are to our world. He uses a variety of tools -- theories of signaling games, information, evolution, and learning -- to investigate how meaning and communication develop. He shows how signaling games themselves evolve, and introduces a new model of learning with invention. The juxtaposition of atomic signals leads to complex signals, as the natural product of gradual process. Signals operate innetworks of senders and receivers at all levels of life. Information is transmitted, but it is also processed in various ways. T.

The dynamics of norms ( Book )
7 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 289 libraries worldwide
"In the social sciences norms are sometimes taken to play a key explanatory role. Yet norms differ from group to group, from society to society, and from species to species. How are norms formed and how do they change?" "This "state-of-the-art" collection of essays presents some of the best contemporary research into the dynamical processes underlying the formation, maintenance, metamorphosis, and dissolution of norms. The volume combines formal modeling with more traditional analysis, and considers biological and cultural evolution, individual learning, and rational deliberation." "In filling a significant gap in the current literature this volume will be of particular interest to economists, political scientists, and sociologists, in addition to philosophers of the social sciences."--Jacket.
Probability and conditionals : belief revision and rational decision ( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
This is a state-of-the-art collection of essays on the relation between probabilities, especially conditional probabilities, and conditionals. It provides new negative results that sharply limit the ways conditionals can be related to conditional probabilities. There are also positive ideas and results that will open up new areas of research. The collection is intended to honor Ernest W. Adams, whose seminal work is largely responsible for creating this area of inquiry. In addition to describing, evaluating, and applying Adams's work, these contributions extend his ideas in directions he may or may not have anticipated, but that he certainly inspired. This volume should be of interest to a wide range of philosophers of science, as well as to computer scientists and linguists.
