Whately, Oriel Noetics and Convention of Interest for
Orthogonally, in terms of content, we have the cognitive, exemplified by Piaget's heroic failure, but also the noetic. The noetic manifests with the "unreasonable effectiveness" of symbolic systems (see below), perhaps gleaned from the Noosphere.
As we distance ourselves from the cognitive, we paradoxically get more precision in the noetic, and ultimately a few parts (perhaps up to 100) in a trillion in noumenal mentation in the noetic realm.
These orthogonal categories; the coupled, intentional and "determinative" on the one hand and sensorimotor, cognitive, and noetic on the other is how I construe the whole of mind/world interaction from sensorimotor behaviour to observation in QM.
In modernity, we can teach biology as a level of Being separate from inert matter; mentation as comprising the noetic and the noumenal as well as the cognitive; and invite young adults to courses of formation of themselves as people that do not involve massive student debt, or any curtailment of freedom of thought due to financial constraints and power asymmetry..
The second is that when such formalisms are denotational--that is, when they correspond to the planned suburbs of Wittgenstein's "city of language"--the act of mind involved is better termed "noetic" than "cognitive".
The response here is to reintroduce an ontological approach to nature, a great chain of being; to distinguish the noumenal and other types of mentation in the orthogonal trio of sensorimotor, cognitive and noetic; to smuggle back the will with references to metabolism and attention; and to remain open to the transcendent.
