The Science Behind Inqwire

Total Read Time: 22 Minutes

A New Era of Cognitive Science

Every field of science evolves from understanding the what to understanding the how. Observable phenomena are first broken down into component parts which are labeled, classified, and understood as individual pieces (the what). Then the work of understanding how these pieces work together (the how) begins.

Modern cognitive science is currently undergoing this very evolution. The last decade has seen an explosion in the amount and quality of research into the fundamental nature of cognition. Systems we traditionally thought of as separate – intelligence, thought, emotion, movement, perception, meaning, wisdom, ethics, and even distress (the what) are not separable and have evolved to work together to help us make sense of and navigate our lives (the how).

These new insights are creating a widespread impact across multiple fields of science. Overly simplified theories of the psyche and cognition are being falsified, entire textbooks are being re-written, and naive attempts to find something broken in the human cognitive system to explain failures to make sense of life are being abandoned. In their wake, an exciting new story is emerging that reveals how elegant, powerful, and ingenious human cognitive processes are.

In the pages to come, we present this new story of cognition and the evidence behind it. It will become clear how making sense of life is a fundamental function of our cognition, and that because of this, we each already possess the intelligence, the expertise, and the capacity to make sense of our own lives. We’ll understand how our fundamental relationship to information, both in how it is represented, and how we engage it, comprises our largest barriers to making sense. And we will reveal common-sense steps that everyone can follow to reduce these barriers and exciting ways technology can help.
