    Dear Humanists,

    Hi, when I was thinking regarding early periods of AI, then the book of
    Rodney Brooks, " _Cambrian Intelligence_: The Early History of the New
    AI" came to my mind and thought might also interest you. In the book,
    author introduces a behaviour-based approach to robotics. The main aspect
    of his theory is the realization that directly coupling perception with
    action gives rise to the power of intelligence, and cognition is relative
    to the observer.

    The book has two sections, as Technology and Philosophy with chapters,
    such as --A Robust Layered Control System for a Mobile Robot, A Robot That
    Walks: Emergent Behaviors from a Carefully Evolved Network, Intelligence,
    Intelligent without Reason..etc..

    See details at (http://mitpress.mit.edu/book-home.tcl?isbn=0262522632)
    Here are web-pointers related to his book, *Cambrian Intelligence*:

    Intelligence Without Reason

    A Robot That Walks; Emergent Behaviors from a Carefully Evolved Network

    Thank you..
    Best Regards
