Enaction, Convolution and Conceptualism: An AI-Based Exploration of Dharmakīrti’s Perception and Conception
Franklin and Marshall College
Abstract: This paper attempts to give a preliminary account of concept formation that employs ideas from artificial intelligence to naturalize certain points of Dharmakīrti’s philosophy. It argues for a form of conceptualism that employs enactive cognition and neural networks to ground a conceptualist understanding of concepts which are imputed on the basis of an agent’s interaction with its environment.
Keywords: Dharmakīrti, artificial intelligence, enaction
