  • Doctoral students have often requested concrete examples and guidelines from us. On the other hand, many guidebooks are at a more general level than the requested instruction. Ideally, adequate guidance would be conducted by a supervising professor, or a research group, but this is not always the case.

  • Haugeland (1998) eloquently describes the relation between mind and world as one of intimacy, a ‘commingling’ or ‘integralness’ of mind, body, and world. Cognition depends as much on aspects of the agent’s environment as on the agent’s inherent properties. Because it is the joint effect of these properties that control cognition, their contributions to individual cognitive processes cannot be considered one by one.

  • There are actually a few problems. While the DOB is harder to guess, the data isn’t exactly confidential (besides the fact that it only has roughly 16,200 possible answers (12 x 30 x between the ages of 15 and 60)), based upon possible average user demographics.

  • Modern-day smog is often referred to as ‘photochemical’ smog. It is produced by complex, sunlight-stimulated chemical reactions among the components of automobile exhaust. It is responsible for much of today's air pollution in cities such as Los Angeles and Denver. Carbon monoxide from incomplete combustion of automobile engines, particulate matter and NOx all react to generate the noxious brown haze. An estimated 80% of smog today arises from vehicle exhausts. Not only does smog smell bad and obstructs vision, but both short-term and long-term exposure to it may be hazardous.
