  1. Gabriel Vacariu & Mihai Vacariu (2015). "Is Cognitive Neuroscience a Pseudo-Science?". Datagroup.
    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 (...)

    This book is about the epistemologically different worlds (hyperverse) in relationship with the "I", the mind-body problem (Frith, Llinas), Bechtel's mechanisms, Clark's extended mind, Bickle's molecular and cellular cognition, Kauffman's life, quantum mechanics, gravity, hyperspace vs. hyperverse -/- .

  4. 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 (...)

    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 (...)
