Abstract

Spanish abstract: Derek Bickerton propone una distinción entre modos de consciencia y actividad mental 'en red' y 'fuera de red', desarrollada con vistas a comprender el origen del lenguaje. Aquí situamos esta noción en el contexto de las actuales teorías neurológicas sobre la consciencia. El modo 'fuera de red' de la actividad mental lo relacionamos, además, al desarrollo y activación de estructuras simbólicas complejas, lo cual lo transforma también en un modo 'en red' de actividad mental, en diferente sentido.

English abstract: Derek Bickerton's notion of an 'online' and an 'offline' mode of consciousness and mental activity, developed with a view to understanding the origin of language, is set in the context of contemporary neurological theories of consciousness. The 'offline' mode of mental activity is here related, in addition, to the development and activation of complex networks of symbolism, which makes it an 'online' mode of mental activity as well, in another sense.
