  1. The dialogically extended mind: Language as skilful intersubjective engagement.Riccardo Fusaroli, Nivedita Gangopadhyay & Kristian Tylén - 2013 - Cognitive Systems Research.
    A growing conceptual and empirical literature is advancing the idea that language extends our cognitive skills. One of the most influential positions holds that language – qua material symbols – facilitates individual thought processes by virtue of its material properties (Clark, 2006a). Extending upon this model, we argue that language enhances our cognitive capabilities in a much more radical way: the skilful engagement of public material symbols facilitates evolutionarily unprecedented modes of collective perception, action and reasoning (interpersonal synergies) creating dialogically (...)

  2. Individuation and Identity in quantum mechanics.Debajyoti Gangopadhyay - 2022 - In Nalanda Dialogue Series , Volume 2. Nalanda , India: Navanalanda Mahavihara. pp. 151-165.
    Developments of quantum mechanics during the first three decades of the last century led most fundamentally to different orders of difficulties in the spatio-temporal modes of description. And, as a consequence, ambiguities in the meaning of quantum mechanical are in sight for the first time. So the question (from logico-philosophical grounds) we were left as back as late 20s of the last century – a question methodologically prior to all other questions - How to talk about quantum particles [in a (...)

  3. On the Role of Inconsistency in Quantum Foundational Debate and Hilbert Space Formulation.Debajyoti Gangopadhyay - 2022 - Quanta 11 (Number 1):28-41.
    This article is intended mainly to develop an expository outline of an inherently inconsistent reasoning in the development of quantum mechanics during 1920s, which set up the background of proposing different variants of quantum logic a bit later. We will discuss here two of the quantum logical variants with reference to Hilbert space formulation, based on the proposals of Bohr and Schrödinger as a result of addressing the same kernel of difficulties and will give a relative comparison. Our presentation is (...)

    Means of cognition and the shifty split between subjective and objective.Debajyoti Gangopadhyay - 2022 - In Bhattacharya Roy (ed.), Nalanda Dialogue Series, Volume 4 , Navanalanda Mahavihara , Nalanda , 2022. Nalanda: Navanalanda Mahavihara , Nalanda. pp. 362-378.
    As the process of formation of knowledge is a perennial concern of philosophical investigation, any systematic study of philosophy, irrespective of Eastern and Western origins, starts with a thorough assessment of our valid means of cognition. Needless to say, that our means of cognitions play a crucial role in scientific knowledge formation also. But the question of delimiting clearly the objective means of cognition from the subject of cognition continues to stimulate epistemological troubles. This has been dramatized after quantum mechanics. (...)

    Failure of classical theory of Knowledge in Quantum Mechanics and beyond.Debajyoti Gangopadhyay - 2022 - In Nalanda Dialogue Series . Volume 2. Nalanda , India: Navanalanda Mahavihara.
    We will argue here, that one of the salient messages of standard quantum formalism implies a failure of Classical Theory of Knowledge (hereafter CTK) which is primarily based on the presumption that, our knowledge is predetermined by Nature. This failure provides pointers against the classically held ontological definiteness of future. Quantum formalism admits interpretation , that suggests, that there is no such thing as ‘universal global present’ in the sense of being able to confirm a complete set of facts of (...)

  6. Journey towards Sunyata from Quantum Mechanics.Debajyoti Gangopadhyay - 2009 - In Ramaranjan Mukherjee Mukherjee & Buddhadev Bhattacharya (eds.), Dimensions of Buddhism and Jainism ,Professor Suniti Kumar Pathak felicitation , Vol II. pp. pp 281-289.
    In this article we have tried basically to lay out an outline of possible overlap between the metaphysical standpoints of the Madhyamik Buddhism with the so called Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. We argued here that , both Madhyamik Buddhism as well as Copenhagen develop some common grounds of skepticism or cautionary notes against the classical intuitive Realist ideology committed to ontological priority of individual . So , though the presiding contexts of Madhyamik Buddhism and quantum mechanics are admittedly very (...)
