Francisco J. Ayala, University of California, Irvine Auletta integrates in an overarching treatise several scientific topics of greatest currency: informatics, evolutionary biology, neurobiology and cognitive science, and navigates the diverse topics with amazing breadth and depth.

Karl Friston, University College London Most people in theoretical neurobiology and systems neuroscience will applaud this approach and nearly everyone will learn something new from this book... It is unique in its eclectic and integrative approach spanning nearly every current field of the physical and biological sciences to address fundamental issues about how the brain works.

Marc Jeannerod, Institute for Cognitive Science, Lyon, France Auletta's endeavor in his book on Cognitive Biology is to catch the complexity of the brain and mind as it is rooted in biology. This requires building a new discipline which will bridge the gap between biological complexity and the treatment of information at the quantum mechanical level. The novelty and the success of this enterprise is backed by a striking amount of knowledge in neuroscience, cognitive science, physics and philosophy.

Övrig information

<br>Gennaro Auletta is Aggregate Professor in the Gregorian University, Researcher in the Cassino University, and Scientific Director of the STOQ Project. He is also visiting professor in the University of Notre Dame, associate of the Faraday Institute of the Cambridge University, and member of the Linnean Society of London. After taking his degree in philosophy at La Sapienza University in Rome he took his Ph.D and his Postdoc in Philosophy at the same university. His philosophical interests are logic, philosophy of nature (with special connections with quantum mechanics and biology), philosophy of mind, and metaphysics. In science, his main interests are in quantum mechanics (quantum information, foundations, interpretation). For the last ten years his research interests have addressed issues in the treatment of information by biological systems (from bacteria to human brain), in cognitive neurosciences.<br>
