Career Summary

Biography

C. A. Hooker, FAHA, PhD (Physics), PhD (Philosophy), is Professor of Philosophy, University of Newcastle. He is Director of the Complex Adaptive Systems Research Group, researching foundations of self-organisation, bio-cognitive organisation - both organismic and scientific evolution-development, and sustainable development, and author/editor of 20+ books and 100+ papers across these areas plus foundations of physics. He is Director of Assessing sustainability dimensions and impacts, The Cooperative Research Centre for Coal in Sustainable Development, aiming to re-focus sustainable development around resiliency, and houses and supervises Sustainability Options for Australia's Future for the Joint Academies' Committee on Sustainability, Australian National Academies Forum. His articles have appeared in the Encyclopaedia of Philosophy, Proceedings of the British Academy and in many of the leading research journals. He teaches these interdisciplinary ideas to engineers, psychologists and business students as well as to philosophy students.

Research Expertise
On-going research comprises 6 distinct streams, all closely interrelated through their employment of a core of complex adaptive system [CAS] models based on non-linear dynamical system [NLDS] theory. These streams are all active, and interactive, with some priority ordering, but ultimately the degree of their activation varies opportunistically, according as circumstances permit. They are presented in logical order, by decreasing generality of systems focus. (S1) General systems metaphysics. The overarching aim here is to clarify the general mathematical and ontological foundations of all NLDS, especially CAS. Active associate investigator is Dr. John Collier, University of Durban, SA and ex-postdoctoral fellow at CAS Research Group [CASRG]. Two investigations are on-going. (S1.1) Reduction and emergence in NLDS. Collier and Hooker are completing a book providing the first scientifically rigorous theory of reduction and emergence in NLDS. All 9 chapters have been drafted. For 2004 Hooker was privileged to publish a major (40pp.) lead article in The British Journal of the Philosophy of Science, the premier European journal in the field, on asymptotics, reduction and emergence. Collier has continued re-working the mathematical foundations (ch.s 2,3) while Hooker has been developing the analysis of multi-level functional capacities in NLDS (ch. 7). (S1.2) Philosophy of complex systems, international editorship. Hooker has been invited by the international editorial board of the Handbook of Philosophy of Science to edit the volume 'Complexity, Chaos and Non-linearity'. He has invited Collier to join him in this prestigious task and an exchange of contracts for a 2007 volume (likely 2008 in practice) has been completed. In addition, another investigation, Foundations of information in NLDS, by Scott Muller successfully concluded with the granting of his PhD thesis in 2004 to international, inter-disciplinary praise. A book based on the thesis is now in process with Springer. (S2) Organisation of bio-cognitive agents. The overarching aim is to understand the general organisation of biological individuals, especially the sources of their adaptiveness, in particular their cognitive adaptiveness. Active UN investigator is Prof. C.A. Hooker, active associate investigators are Prof. M. Bickhard, Henry Luce professor of Psychology and Cognitive Robotics, Lehigh University, USA (ex-visiting fellow CASRG), Dr. Wayne Christensen, University of Durban, SA (and ex-postdoctoral fellow Konrad Lorenz Institut, Vienna and at CASRG), and Prof. A. Moreno, University of the Basques, Spain (ex-visiting fellow CASRG). The initial investigations by CASRG of biological organisation led to the fundamental organisational constraint called autonomy and to a cognitive methodology called self-directed anticipative learning [SDAL]. The SDAL methodology can facilitate the learning of solutions to problems for which even the problem itself let alone the solution method is initially not clear. This is the basic situation for all fundamental bio-cognitive problems. An invited special issue of the international journal Synthese on these ideas is being prepared under Bickhard’s guest editorship and a jointly authored book on the nature of autonomous systems has been given a first outline draft and is being considered by Bickhard and Moreno. (S3) Bio-cognitive organisation and scientific learning. The overarching aim is to investigate basic learning processes in science using bio-cognitive organisation models. Active UN investigators are Prof. C.A. Hooker, Dr. Robert Farrell, postdoctoral research assistant, Dr. Yin Gao, active associate investigators are Dr. Wayne Christensen (see S2 above) and Dr. William Herfel (U. W. Sydney). Three investigations are current. (S3.1) SDAL and scientific learning. Research by Farrell and Hooker (initiated in 2002/3 by Christensen and Hooker) has focused on the detailed examination of a prominent period in the history of sci

The domain of nonlinear dynamical systems and its mathematical underpinnings has been developing exponentially for a century, the last 35 years seeing an outpouring of new ideas and applications and a concomitant confluence with ideas of complex systems and their applications from irreversible thermodynamics. A few examples are in meteorology, ecological dynamics, social and economic dynamics. These new ideas have profound implications for our understanding and practice in domains involving complexity, predictability and determinism, equilibrium ... control, planning, individuality, responsibility and so on. Our intention is to draw together in this volume, we believe for the first time, a comprehensive picture of the manifold, philosophically interesting impacts of recent developments in understanding nonlinear systems and the unique aspects of their complexity. The book will focus specifically on the philosophical concepts, principles, judgements and problems distinctly raised by work in the domain of complex non-linear dynamical systems, especially in recent years.

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd A modestly generic, innovative, problem solving process with roots in the study of design and scientific research problem solving is presented and motivated. It is argued to be the shared core process of all problem solving. At its heart is a recognition of five foci or nodes of change vital to the process (changes in problem and solution formulation, method, constraints, and partial solution proposals) together with a bootstrap marked by the formation of higher order knowledge about problem solving in the domain in tandem with the solving of specific problems, the essential feature of all learned improvement. None of these elements is entirely original, but the way they are made explicit and developed (rather than folded into fewer, more abstract, boxes) is argued to provide fresh understanding of the organisation and power of the process to deal with complex practical problems.

© 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Galle and Kroes (this journal 2014) have critiqued a recent paper by Farrell and Hooker (this journal 2012) that argued that design and science shared a common core problem-solving (cognitive) process. Contrarily, Galle and Kroes argued for distinct purposive identities to design and science and on that and further grounds argued for their having distinct core cognitive processes. In turn, this paper argues, first, that the distinct purposive identities provided by Galle and Kroes are appropriate, but quite compatible with design and science sharing a common core cognitive process. Second, this paper argues that the further arguments for cognitive distinctness proffered by Galle and Kroes founder on illogicality and/or too shallow an understanding of scientific process.

The purpose of this paper and its sister paper (Farrell and Hooker, b) is to present, evaluate and elaborate a proposed new model for the process of scientific development: self-directed anticipative learning (SDAL). The vehicle for its evaluation is a new analysis of a well-known historical episode: the development of ape-language research. In this first paper we outline five prominent features of SDAL that will need to be realized in applying SDAL to science: 1) interactive exploration of possibility space; 2) self-directedness; 3) localization of success and error; 4) Synergistic increase in learning capacity; and 5) continuity of SDAL process across scientific change. In this paper we examine the first three features of SDAL in relation to the early history of ape-language research. We show that this history is readily explicated as a self-directed, ever-finer, delineation of possibility space that enables the localization of both success and error. Paper II examines the last two features against this history. © 2007 by The Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The purpose of this paper and its sister paper I (Farrell and Hooker, a) is to present, evaluate and elaborate a proposed new model for the process of scientific development: self-directed anticipative learning. The vehicle for its evaluation is a new analysis of a well-known historical episode: the development of ape language research. Paper I examined the basic features of SDAL in relation to the early history of ape-language research. In this second paper we examine the reconceptualization of ape-language research following what many conceived to be Terrace's refutation of ape-language. We show that the apparent 'revolution' in our understanding of ape linguistic capacities was not based upon 'revolutionary' research different in kind from 'normal' research. The same processes of self-directed interactive exploration of possibility space, that enables a homing-in upon both error and success, is present in all phases of productive science. Moreover, conceiving science as an SDAL process explains how scientists learn how to learn about their research domain. ©2007 by The Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Siegel argues that no naturalist account of the normative is possible because only means, not ends, can be naturalised - but ends are essential. I want to agree that ends are essential to understanding normativity, yet remain naturalist. In response I argue that a fully naturalised and fallibilist, constructivist theory of objective ends is both possible and plausible. I show how Siegel's arguments rely on ignoring/denying this possibility. © 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.

An explicit philosophy and meta-philosophy of positivism, empiricism and popperianism is provided. Early popperianism is argued to be essentially a form of empiricism, the deviations from empiricism are traced. In contrast, the meta-philosophy and philosophy of an evolutionary naturalistic realism is developed and it is shown how the maximal conflict of this doctrine with all forms of empiricism at the meta-philosophical level both accounts for the form of its development at the philosophical level and its defense against attack from nonrealist quarters. Following an earlier article on realism of similar theme (Synthese 26 (1974), 409) this paper then further explores the ramifications of a thoroughgoing realist position. © 1975 D.

Jauch's theory of measurement, if satisfactory, would have provided an elegant and very simple solution to all of the standard difficulties found in other versions of the measurement process in quantum theory. We have examined this theory and found it to contain an important element of obscurity (that concerned with just exactly under what conditions the reductions may be performed) and ambiguity (namely concerning which reductions are to be performed), but most importantly we have concluded that it was both inconsistent and lacking in physical plausibility. © 1972 Plenum Publishing Company Limited.

Professor J. Jauch, in his recent book, Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, claims to resolve the paradox of Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen. Jauch¿s approach is representative of that adopted by the majority of physicists. I argue that, although Jauch does exhibit a consistent quantum formalism for dealing with situations of the type involved in the original paradox, that formalism, so far from doing away with the paradox, serves only to highlight the difficulties of providing an acceptable physical understanding of it. The paradox must remain, therefore, as a central clue in the search for a more adequate understanding of quantum theory. © 1970, American Association of Physics Teachers. All rights reserved.

The interference between the two characteristic waves in a magnetized plasma has been studied for propagation both parallel and perpendicular to the magnetic field. A new microwave interferometer which has been used to measure electron densities is described.

A preliminary experiment has been conducted on the refraction of microwaves which are incident at an arbitrary angle on a plane, parallel-sided slab of magnetized plasma. The main features of the experimental results are adequately described when Appleton's equations, for propagation at an angle to the magnetic field, are applied to a simple plasma model.

Use of silica sand as a proppant has grown dramatically over the last decade with the rise in production of unconventional resources. Massive volumes of sand are transported to a wellsite and pneumatically conveyed into frac sanders. After formation fracture, sand is moved from the sanders across conveyers into the blender where it's mixed with fluid for transport downhole. During these operations, a significant amount of silica dust enters the air and onsite personnel are exposed. The dangers of inhaling dust and fine particles have been known for hundreds of years, yet many workers today are still not adequately protected. Silicosis, the most widespread industrial disease, results from exposure to crystalline silica and kills hundreds of workers every year and detrimentally affects the lives of untold more. Historically, many cases of silicosis have been associated with sand blasting, mining, and construction. There is now potential for connections to the hydraulic fracturing industry. Symptoms of silicosis can take 10-15 years to materialize, but once it develops the disease progresses incurably. According to a recent U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) study, many frac sites exposure levels exceed, sometimes by a factor of 10, the NIOSH Recommended Exposure Limit (REL) to crystalline silica. The rapid expansion of the hydraulic fracturing industry has in some places outpaced necessary regulations and equipment for worker safety, especially dust control. A dust collection system has been developed to target sand filling operations where sand particles are likely to be released into the air. With a system in place that aims to contribute to the U.S Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) permissible exposure levels (PELs), the threat of silicosis is significantly reduced from the hydraulic fracture process and unconventional development is made safer for everyone involved. This paper will discuss the dust collection equipment, its deployment and integration with existing equipment, as well as other activities to reduce worker exposure.
