Abstract

“Decision” as a cognitive phenomenon can be interpreted as the result of neural behavior. Various scientific models have ever since dealt with this essential aspect of human interaction, involving different philosophic backgrounds such as holistic vs. analytic approaches, Aristotle vs. Confucius, Confucius vs. Buddha with their respective impact on the definition of “subjectivity” and “objecitiviy.” This paper fosters three appoaches for subjective and/or objective decision making: 1) Explained neurobiologically as an internal representation or 2) “autopoietically” according to Radical Constructivism and 3) mathematically as a Fuzzy algorithm. In order to choose the appropriate computational decision support techniques the structural complexity of the phenomenon “decision” has to be determined. Globalization with its manyfold cross-cultural contacts may serve as an example for the relevance of the implementation of KBDSS in real-life settings. When it comes to cross-cultural exchange, business or otherwise, skills in decision making are a cue value and a key to success. The main issue of this paper is to develop a multidisciplinary humanoid approach to the configuration of KBDSS that enable us to follow the traces and identify the origins – neural, sensual, linguistc or other – that are implicitely or explicitely involved in human decision making.
