Abstract

This paper uses Category Theory to integrate a nonlinear, nonhomogeneous ordinary differential equation system into an input/output representation in an attempt to capture the mechanism behind the formation of pure preference in humans. The model shows that the human brain belongs to the class of functions U ε C2(R3, R). In addition, it shows that there exists an emerging factor, e, which is sine qua non for expressing a preference. The factor, e, may be associated with ‘judgement’ which, in turn, may neatly subsume ‘consciousness’, the arrival of new information, and cases of selection under risks and uncertainty.
