    Gabriel Vacariu & Mihai Vacariu (2008). The "I" as an Epistemological World. Annals of Philosophy, Bucharest University 1:47-64.
    The first part of this article contains certain elements of the epistemologically different worlds perspective that focus on the idea that the "I" or human subjectivity is an epistemological world which corresponds to the brain and body. The second part shows that Bechtel's notion of mechanism is, in fact, a more "technical" functionalism that tries to avoid the mind-brain problem. However, by avoiding the mind-brain problem, many cognitive issues remain unsolved. Thus, we consider that Bechtel's solution is only a surrogate-alternative (...)

    Gabriel Vacariu, Dalia Terhesiu & Mihai Vacariu (2001). Toward a Very Idea of Representation. Synthese 129 (2):275-295.
    The actual approaches of Cognitive Science offer a partial explanation of cognition. In this paper, our main point is to catch some key elements from these approaches, that can be taken together in a future perspective for a better explanation of cognition. The key elements (levels of analysis, primitives, processes, structures, threshold,self-organisation, bidirectionality, emergency, habituation, tasks, theinteraction between levels and also the interactions between the elements of the cognitive system and the environment) help us to stress the need of the (...)

    Gabriel Vacariu & Mihai Vacariu (2013). Troubles with Cognitive Neuroscience. Philosophia Scientae 17:151-170.
    This special issue is dedicated to one of the oldest and most controversial philosophical topics, the mind–body problem. Paradoxically, since Descartes until the present days, nobody has proposed a viable solution to this problem. In the last decades, through the unification of neuroscience and psychology, a new science, cognitive neuroscience, was created to deal with this problem. Using EEG, fMRI, and other apparatus, scientists try to grasp the “correlations” between any mental state and some neural patterns of activation. Articles and (...)

    Gabriel Vacariu & Mihai Vacariu (2016). Dark Matter and Dark Energy, Space and Time, and Other Pseudo-Notions in Cosmology. Datagroup on Amazon Now.
    Dark matter and dark energy. Two notions that have troubled cosmologists for a long time. Why? Because they don’t have a “satisfactory” definition, and nobody can identify the “matter” or “forces” that govern them. Currently, we can only deduce the existence of these two notions from the strange movement of the galaxies and the manner they move away from one another, with increasing speed. However, these are not the only mysteries that cosmology cannot yet explain. What happened before the Big (...)

    Gabriel Vacariu & Mihai Vacariu (2015). "Is Cognitive Neuroscience a Pseudo-Science?". Datagroup, Http://Www.Amazon.Com/Cognitive-Neuroscience-Pseudoscience-Gabriel-Vacariu-Ebook/Dp/B013GOZNYY/Ref=S r_1_7?Ie=UTF8&Qid=1439130530&Sr=8-7&Keywords=Vacariu.
    This book is a synthesis of all our works on cognitive neuroscience since 2008 to 2015. Within the “epistemologically different worlds” perspective, we investigate the main topics of cognitive neuroscience: fMRI and EEG, localization, the binding problem, perception, multisensory integration, holism and default mode network. Our main question is “Why none of these problems has been solved after many years of research?”. Our answer is that these problems are in fact pseudo-problems. We present the optimism research (Gallant’s laboratory works, for (...)

    Gabriel Vacariu & Mihai Vacariu (2016). Sinele - o lume epistemologica [Self an epistemological world]. Datagroup.
    În cartea lui Gabriel şi Mihai Vacariu, paradigma Lumilor Epistemologic Diferite se confruntă cu cea mai mare provocare de până acum. Poate ea oferi un răspuns satisfăcător vechii probleme a Sinelui? Ce este Sinele şi care este relaţia sa cu mintea umană? Ocupă el un loc fizic în creier sau este un simplu produs al acestuia? Este Sinele un construct sau, mai grav, o pseudo-problemă? „Sinele, o lume epistemologică” ne prezintă o definiţie ce evită cu eleganţă atât contradicţiile epistemologice, cât (...)
