The dual role of 'emergence' in the philosophy of mind and in cognitive science

Synthese 151 (3):485-498 (2006)
Abstract
The concept of emergence is widely used in both the philosophy of mind and in cognitive science. In the philosophy of mind it serves to refer to seemingly irreducible phenomena, in cognitive science it is often used to refer to phenomena not explicitly programmed. There is no unique concept of emergence available that serves both purposes.
