Description & Coverage
Description:

There is no common understanding of the concept of the human mind, its changes in different historical epochs, forecasts for development, or its influence on the phenomena of art and culture. The connection between the evolution of the mind, anatomical changes, and social organization are not clear. Through the theory of self-organization of complex systems, the essence of cultural changes in different historical periods and solutions to practical questions in the theory of art and design are better understood.

Self-Organization of the Human Mind and the Transition From Paleolithic to Behavioral Modernity is a critical scholarly resource that examines the development of human consciousness as a realization of the laws of self-organization or complex systems. The theory of self-organization of complex systems uses the mathematical apparatus of the wave model of S-space. The book also conducts a comparison of theoretical assumptions with specific cultural phenomena that are manifestations of the evolution of the mind. Featuring a range of topics such as behavior, rationality, and culture, this book is essential for archaeologists, academicians, anthropologists, researchers, sociologists, professionals, and students.
