People trained in classical AI will find this book an articulate and thought-provoking challenge to much that they have taken for granted. People new to cognitive science will find it a stimulating introduction to one of the field's most productive controversies. Pfeifer and Scheier deserve our thanks for a thorough, accessible, and courteous contribution in the best tradition of scholarly debate.--H. Van Dyke, Computing Reviews
Evolutionary theory says that the brain has evolved not to do mathematical proofs but to control behaviour and ensure survival. Researchers agree that intelligence always manifests itself in behaviour - thus it is behaviour that must be understood. A new field has grown around the study of behaviour-based intelligence, also known as embodied cognitive science, "new AI" and "behaviour-based AI". This book provides a systematic introduction to this new way of thinking. After discussing concepts and approaches such as subsumption architecture, Braitenberg vehicles, evolutionary robotics, artificial life, self-organization and learning, the authors derive a set of principles and a framework for the study of naturally and artificially intelligent systems, or autonomous agents. This framework is based on a synthetic methodology whose goal is understanding by designing and building. The text includes the background material required to understand the principles underlying intelligence, as well as information of intelligent robotics and simulated agents so readers can begin experiments and projects on their own.The reader is guided through a series of case studies that illustrate the design principles of embodied cognitive science.

The problem is that the authors, publishers, many online reviewers etc. miss the keyword "robotics" in describing the text. Because of this, some shoppers may be tempted to write this off as one of the following mistakes: an IQ book; a new book about cognitive psych; a new apology for antiquated AI concepts. NOT! The book truly IS a robotics text, because "behaviorism" in the author's frame means learning about intelligence hands on by designing and working with robots, either simulated or physical.
Asmiov once said that the greatest intelligence produces the greatest autonomy, and to add modern programming and cognitive insights about recursion to the mix: robots that create autonomous robots would clearly border on Turing completeness, not to mention mistaking them as having human abilities (if not completely indistiguisable, still acceptable in the newer models of frames and domains-- each entity perhaps complete in its own areas of strength, a very cool idea promoted for two decades by these authors).
You can use the generous look inside feature on this book now on Amazon, so I won't bore you with how great some of the ideas are, but wanted to make the point of adding robotics to the keywords for your consideration. If robotics fascinates you, this will be as much or more fun than Kurzweil, Eliasmith (how to make a mind/ build a brain, etc.) and other excellent writers exploring the mind/mechanism interface in new ways. Fun, great cartoons, deep yet not written to show off the authors' math ability-- approachable even for basic EE's like me who think in circuits more than synapses. Highly Recommended.
