Published Online: Feb 11 2020

From the systems it is embodied in, to the dynamics it enacts, cognition is a complex systems phenomenon that exhibits emergence, nonlinearity, self‐organization, and universality. A radical new approach is needed in order to explain and understand complex cognitive systems. Cognitive science as complexity science is such an investigative framework.

Must all signals be evolved? A proposal for a new classification of communicative acts
Published Online: Mar 16 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wcs.1527
Onto‐ and phylogenetic origins of behavioral signals. Most behavioral signals are derived from cues that evolve into signals through intention movements or displacement acts. Through invention and subsequent social transmission, some cues or other invented behavior patterns with communicative effect may become cultural, and may or may not subsequently become manifested in a species' innate repertoire. Very few signals are derived from ontogenetic ritualization, which may or may not become group‐ and species‐specific (dotted paths).
