Happy birthday to Joaquín. Here is a bio-sketch of Joaquín’s life and a summary of his work. Also check out Joaquín’s “Hayek in Today’s Cognitive Neuroscience” which he wrote for my edited collection in 2011. Some 20 years ago I gave a talk on Hayek’s philosophical psychology examining the continuities between Hayek’s social connectionism and his proto-neuroconnectionism, only for him to be dismissed by snide “neo-liberal” aspersions. It was at that point it became apparent just how ideologically mendacious and ill-informed things had become in the academy. Had I’d known of Joaquín’s work back then, someone with real distinction in CogSci, it would have been rather easy to show up this person’s bad faith.
