By Professor Dr. Rangaswamy Narasimhan (auth.)

This publication stories language behaviour within the greater context of modelling or­ ganismic behaviour extra often. It starts off out from the fundamental premise that what's attribute of organismic behaviour is that an organism makes use of its behavioural acts to complete anything in its interactions with the realm within which it unearths itself. those positive factors, that an organism has a behav­ ioural repertoire and that it deploys particular behavioural acts from its repertoire in an intentional approach, outline the agentive nature of an organism. The examine of organismic behaviour, then, needs to essentially problem itself with this agentive element of an organism and make certain what constructions and proces­ ses underlie those intentional organismic acts. we should always be capable of say what primitive constructions and what primitive procedures prepare in what methods may give upward push to the types of behavioural acts an organism engages in. Any clarification of behaviour that we formulate by way of underlying constructions and procedures has to be testable and needs to be consonant with the saw pheno­ menological points of such behaviour.

Example text

Learning essentially involves 1) learning new schemata; 2) learning new compositions of available schemata, that is, learning new structures made up of constituents which are available structures; and 3) relating these to aspects of new behavioural environments encountered. 2, coping with a new environment in terms of 1) and/or 2), and 3) would be an instance of accommodation; coping with a new environment in terms of 3) using available schemata would be an instance of assimilation. 11 Situational aspects in this sense are what the physical sciences study.

Our next postulate concerns the representations of the behavioural aspects as available at the interfaces. P2) The aspects of the total behavioural environment at the interfaces are given in terms of schemata and/or state-variables. Schemata is used as a generic term to refer to abstract structures. A specific schema delineates a particular structure. A schema could be a spatial structure, a temporal structure, or a spatio-temporal structure. We shall consider some examples presently. The distinction between schemata and state-variables is pragmatically an important one.

But with language behaviour one is able to separate out the sensory and motor complexes and mediate them via the language behaviour schemata. That is, one is able to refer to the sensorily apprehended aspects of the world and one's own action schemata independently, and talk about these using the language modality. In this way language behaviour becomes a second signal, a signal of signals. So, what is characteristic of language behaviour is not its signal aspects but its second signal aspects.
