Why do we do anything?
Why do we de anything? Why do we read books? Why do we work hard? Why do we go to church? Why do we blog? It seems I am talking about motivation.
According to behaviorism we do what we do to increase positive reinforces and avoid negative reinforces in the interaction of our brain and environment. Therefore I am starting this blog and perhaps something in it plays the role of positive reinforcement for me which I still have not recognized it and I am eager to blog to understand what it can be. So, apparently I am blogging to understand why I am blogging!
I guess the “Why” investigation didn’t lead to something tangible, so let’s focus on “what”. The content of this blog will be about mind, evolution, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, consciousness, meaning and all these beautiful and vague human concerns.
