The Midterm AISC Conference 2018, Levels of Cognition is focused on how different levels of cognition are identified, examined, and related one to the other. The concept of level, which is widespread both in psychological and biological sciences, is also pivotal for cognitive science. It is generally assumed that living beings are characterized by a hierarchy of distinct levels, such as the atomic, the molecular, the cellular, the neural, the psychological, or the social levels. But what levels should be considered to better understand cognition? What is the relationship between all those levels? Are they just mere levels of analysis, or rather levels of the organization of reality, describing the real structure of cognitive systems? Are levels a necessary theoretical instrument, or rather a confounding metaphor? Does mechanistic explanation, which is widespread in cognitive sciences, make any sense without the distinction among levels? Can the notion of level be grounded into mechanistic explanation?
