Noumena Canon

It's been a while since I posted, so here are a few of the books that I consider canon for the development of Noumena. There are literally hundreds of other books that have influenced Noumena in some form or another (I actually posted several years ago an initial list of some of the books) but these few here are the pillars on which a number of my ideas are based upon.

1.  The Philosophy of Animal Minds, ed. Robert Lutz
2.  Animal Cognition, Clive Wynne
3.  Mental Leaps, Keith Holyoak and Paul Thagard
4.  Mindreading Animals, Robert Lutz
5.  Incomplete Nature, Terrence Deacon
6.  Creating a Memory of Causal Relationships, Michael Pazzani
7.  Who Needs Emotions?, ed Jean-Marc Fellous and Michael Arbib
8.  Behavior: The Control of Perception. William T. Powers
9.  General System Theory. Ludwig von Bertalanffy
10. The Principles of Psychology, Volumes 1 & 2, William James.

Hopefully in the not too distant future, I'll be posting an outline for the manuscript entitled, "Fellow Creatures: A Referential Intelligence." It's a book that covers the development of the referentially based cognitive engine, Noumena.
