The contribution of neurophilosophy is not only abstractive and theoretical. The awareness of the potentiality of the human brain provides a development context to philosophy. It is not just a theorem of the world through a black box, the content of which is not accessible . With scientific research performed on the brain, we now have data that was nonexistent a few years ago. The psychometric field has obtained a spectacular growth and as a result, the combination of the two, has benefited the human himself, who in turn wants to play a role within the context of Humanity.
Those peculiar characteristics are no longer secluded and isolated, but have emerged as rare entities. The relationships which they have developed between them are structurally similar to a neural network. Therefore, in this manner, we are not merely reproducing a model, but we actually create a scale change to this model and this causes a phase change due to extraversionism. Also, the whole structure seems like the brain itself. So, through fractal analysis we can perceive self-reference elements.
Neurophilosophy highlights the fact that the feedback of our brain through knowledge gained regarding the brain, is allowing us to function more consciously. In practice this means that we are more effective. Also, due of our activities we learn of ontological elements. And if they are at an extreme intelligence phase, then we also have isomorphism with teleology.
Classical philosophy has a limitation in regards to thoughts, because, it doesn’t exactly know how it’s producing them. If we examine the medical context, we can of cource regard it as a science, but we never forget that, there is firstly ethics and secondly bioethics.
The analogous that we have as a mental scheme, is that philosophy functions in the context of evaluation, but its actions has also external consequences that we can examine with neurophilosophy. It’s not therefore simply regarding just another branch of cognitive science, but clearly a composition, that enables a holistic approach where the division does not make sense, as, even the simplification constitutes of a degeneration. The contribution of neurophilosophy also allows us to think, of how humanity thinks as a whole, within Time, without social constraints which are purely artificial. The abstractive codification of altruism is of the precurrent studies of neurophilosophy. Now we begin to see that it makes sense as a cognitive strategy
