The Autotelic Principle [chapter]

Luc Steels
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This new, 'autotelic', principle proposes that agents can become self-motivated if their target is to balance challenges and skills.  ...  The dominant motivational paradigm in embodied AI so far is based on the classical behaviorist approach of reward and punishment. The paper introduces a new principle based on 'flow theory'.  ...  The autotelic principle suggests that the balancing of skill and challenge should be the fundamental motivational driving force of the agent.  ...

Scaffolding Language Emergence Using the Autotelic Principle

Luc Steels, Pieter Wellens
2007 2007 IEEE Symposium on Artificial Life  
We show in computational experiments that the autotelic principle is able to explain autonomous scaffolding towards greater complexity in the emergence of language.  ...  We make use of the autotelic principle, coming from psychology. It requires monitoring challenge and skill (based on actual performance) and maintaining a 'flow' regime balancing the two.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The research reported here has been conducted at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and at the Sony Computer Science Laboratory in Paris.  ...

Language Emergence in a Population of Artificial Agents Equipped with the Autotelic Principle

Miquel Cornudella, Thierry Poibeau
2015 Proceedings of the Sixth Workshop on Cognitive Aspects of Computational Language Learning   unpublished
In this article we show how agents provided with the autotelic principle, a system by which agents can regulate their own development, progressively develop an emerging language evolving from one word  ...  Experiments on the emergence of a shared language in a population of agents usually rely on the control of the complexity by the experimenter.  ...  The authors wish to thank their colleagues for their feed-  ...

The Contemporary Quarrel Between Performance and Literature? Reflections on Performance (and) Philosophy

James Corby
2015 Performance Philosophy  
This article argues for an understanding of performance as being motivated by a principle of autotelicity that suspends all considerations other than those of the performance itself as it unfolds in creative  ...  This article asks whether Performance Philosophy risks either undermining the principle of performance by making it subservient to the project of philosophy (and thereby reiterating Plato's foundational  ...  that results from deliberate and autotelic doing, and which I am suggesting can be understood as the principle of performance.  ...

This study aims to investigate the effects of autotelic personality on work engagement levels of employees and the mediating role of personal meaning.  ...  According to the research results, it is found out that the dimensions of autotelic personality labelled as curiosity-persistence and attention control have a positive and significant effect on work engagement  ...  Exploratory factor analyses using principle component analysis with varimax rotation was applied to the adapted scale to check the dimensions.  ...

The Value of Play and the Good Human Life

Shawn E. Klein
2018 Cultura, Ciencia y Deporte  
With these criticisms in mind, my paper seeks to move the discussion of play beyond the apparent dichotomy of autotelicity and instrumentality.  ...  The dominant conception of play in philosophy of sport is that it is autotelic. This conception is the subject of important criticisms by Stephen Schmid and others.  ...  An earlier version of this paper was presented at the 45th Annual Meeting of the International Association  ...

Beyond Autotelic Play

Stephen E. Schmid
2011 Journal of the Philosophy of Sport  
I examine several versions of the conception of play as an autotelic activity. Given these different accounts, I raise the question whether the concept of autotelic play is tenable.  ...  to a range of activities ranging from the purely autotelic to something less; and, (iii) reject the definition of play as an autotelic activity and redefine play.  ...  What the Metaphysical Account does not, and I think cannot, provide is a principled account stating why one set of activities is an end in itself in one context and not an end in itself in another context  ...

Within the autotelic class quite different character struc- tures result according as the tendency to conserve the content un- changed or the tendency toward evolutionary self-organization is dominant.  ...  Just as it was elsewhere made the leading principle of ethics,® it will here serve characterology in a similar capacity. The person-world relation thereby takes on another dimension.  ... 

The Concept of Flow [chapter]

Jeanne Nakamura, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
2014 Flow and the Foundations of Positive Psychology  
Viewed through the experiential lens of flow, a good life is one that is characterized by complete absorption in what one does.  ...  Flow research has yielded one answer, providing an understanding of experiences during which individuals are fully involved in the present moment.  ...  Autotelic Families The question thus becomes how autotelic personality is shaped.  ...
