Extended and Bounded Cognition




For the longest time, the mainstream in philosophy and science treated mind and cognition as a brain-bound, intracranial, produced-in-the-head phenomenon. Whatever we perceive about our mind or whatever we can observe about the cognitive behavior of others must be constituted by something in the brain, or perhaps slightly beyond, of some individual organism. The hypothesis of an extended mind and cognition wants to collapse this foundation – epistemically and metaphysically. We will trace and compare these two positions in their latest developments after Clark and Chalmers published their influential paper for the extended mind thesis in 1998.

“Philosophy for Cognitive Science”; preference is given to BSc students; some background in philosophy of mind is recommend
