The New Science of Curiosity, Hardback Book

The New Science of Curiosity Hardback

Edited by Goren Gordon


Curiosity is the foundation of childhood development and continues on into adulthood; it is the cornerstone of scientific discovery, art and play.

In the past, the study of curiosity has been mainly restricted to the field of psychology.

Recently, a new science of curiosity has emerged that is multidisciplinary, applicative, and transformative.

In this book, some of the leading researchers of this emerging field give a comprehensive background description, explain in detail the state-of-the-art advances, and raise future-looking insights into curiosity.

The book includes accounts of new neuroscientific research of curiosity, computational models of infant-like robots, thought-provoking insights into knowledge and wisdom, and curious social robots that play with curious children.

Furthermore, applications of The New Science of Curiosity in art and game-design highlight the importance of these new approaches to fields outside science.

The New Science of Curiosity also has a great impact on our day-to-day lives, described in the book regarding the medical profession and the educational system.

The New Science of Curiosity holds great promise for a better, deeper, and more comprehensive understanding of this elusive, yet crucial, aspect of human cognition.

Only a multi-disciplinary diverse approach, as presented in this book, holds the key to unlocking the mysteries of exploration, seeking and investigative experiences of our grandiose dreams and daily lives.
