Inman Harvey. In Praise of Evolution and Opacity. In Computational Creativity: An Interdisciplinary Approach. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 9291, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2009)


1.The perspective I bring to questions of creativity in man and machine reflects my background in evolutionary robotics, which I consider an exercise in philosophy of mind, trying to understand the relationship between Behaviour and Mechanism. I have a suitcase full of philosophical premises and assumptions; some of these are common, some will be identifiable as associated with a Dynamical Systems approach to cognitive science, also influenced by Varela; and some will seem plain perverse.
