  1. Eleanor Rosch (2002). How to Catch James's Mystic Germ Religious Experience, Buddhist Meditation and Psychology. Journal of Consciousness Studies 9 (9-10):9-10.
    Within The Varieties of Religious Experience lies the germ of a truly radical idea. It is that religious experience has something important and basic to contribute to the science of psychology. Yet now, a hundred years after the publication of James's monumental work, the mainstream academic fields of psychology are no closer to considering, let alone implementing, this idea than they were in James's day. Why? Surely one aspect of this is the way in which the categories and imagery of (...)

  3. Eleanor Rosch (2000). The Brain Between Two Paradigms: Can Biofunctionalism Join Wisdom Intuitions to Analytic Science? Journal of Mind and Behavior 21 (1-2):189-203.
    Biofunctionalism appears to be a pioneering effort to formulate a portrait of the body&endash;mind which acknowledges intuitions we have about human functioning that go beyond the analytic approach of the cognitive sciences but that can yet remain within the worldview and methods of the analytic portrait. The intuitions are : wholeness, interdependent causality, present temporality, effortless action, realness, panoramic knowing, and value. Such themes are most fully developed in the meditative and contemplative traditions of the world. Biofunctionalism is evaluated both (...)

  4. Eleanor Rosch (1999). Reclaiming Concepts. Journal of Consciousness Studies 6 (11-12):11-12.
    The story is told of a physicist who is invited by a dairy farmers’ association to tell them how to get more milk from cows. The physicist begins: ‘First we start with a spherical cow.’ That is told as a joke!

This chapter is about concepts, the central building blocks of cognitivist theory. I will first show how (...)

  5. Eleanor Rosch (1994). Is Causality Circular? Event Structure in Folk Psychology, Cognitive Science and Buddist Logic. Journal of Consciousness Studies 1 (1):50-50.
    Using as a framework the logical treatment of causality in the Buddhist Madhyamika, a theory of the psychology of event coherence and causal connectedness is developed, and suggestive experimental evidence is offered. The basic claim is that events are perceived as coherent and causally bound to the extent that the outcome is seen to be already contained in the ground of the event in some form and the connecting link between them is seen as the appropriate means for changing the (...)
