About this title

Synopsis:

This bold study is intended to show not only how biological knowledge is acquired, but also how the biological cognitive process itself works, how organisms become aware of their life problems, which algorithms(methods of calculations) have proved reliable for dealing with information from their surroundings and activities, and how these methods become anchored in organisms. Attempts to expose reason's pitfalls and find solutions to some as yet unsolved epistemological questions within the framework of the theory of their evolution. Demonstrates that reason and experience, idea and reality, and mind and matter have been unjustly separated.
