  1. Neo-Mechanistic Explanatory Integration for Cognitive Science: The Problem of Reduction Remains.Diego Azevedo Leite - 2019 - Sofia 8 (1):124-145.
    One of the central aims of the neo-mechanistic framework for the neural and cognitive sciences is to construct a pluralistic integration of scientific explanations, allowing for a weak explanatory autonomy of higher-level sciences, such as cognitive science. This integration involves understanding human cognition as information processing occurring in multi-level human neuro-cognitive mechanisms, explained by multi-level neuro-cognitive models. Strong explanatory neuro-cognitive reduction, however, poses a significant challenge to this pluralist ambition and the weak autonomy of cognitive science derived therefrom. Based on (...)

    Michael Gazzaniga’s Neuro-Cognitive Antireductionism and the Challenge of Neo-Mechanistic Reduction.Diego Azevedo Leite - 2018 - Rivista Internazionale di Filosofia e Psicologia 9 (2):109-126.
    : Michael Gazzaniga, a prominent cognitive neuroscientist, has argued against reductionist accounts of cognition. Instead, Gazzaniga defends a form of non-reductive physicalism: epistemological neuro-cognitive non-reductionism and ontological monist physicalism. His position is motivated by the theses that: cognitive phenomena can be realized by multiple neural systems; many outcomes of these systems are unpredictable; and multi-level explanations are required. Epistemological neuro-cognitive non-reductionism is presented as the most appropriate stance to account for the way in which phenomena should be explained in cognitive (...)
