Christensen W. D. & Hooker C. A. (2000) Autonomy and the emergence of intelligence: Organised interactive construction. Communication and Cognition-Artificial Intelligence 17(3–4): 133–157. Fulltext at
This paper outlines an interactivist-constructivist theory of autonomy as the basic organisational form of life, and the role we see it playing in a theory of embodied cognition. We distinguish our concept of autonomy from autopoiesis, which does not emphasise interaction and openness. We then present the basic conceptual framework of the I-C approach to intelligence, including an account of directed processes, dynamical anticipation, normative evaluation, and selfdirectedness as the basis of intelligence and learning, and use this to briefly reflect on other contemporary dynamical systems approaches.
