Momento’s Revenge

I’ve read just about everything by Andy Clark – as I’ve said several times before he is a superb stylist and is philosophy at its most lively. Some years back I read his paper Memento’s Revenge: Objections and Replies to the Extended Mind. I don’t recall having seen the film that Andy references in his paper; I might have seen clips. Anyway, what’s interesting is that in the discussion after my recent presentation entitled Extended Cognitive Systems to a bunch of economists who didn’t know of the famous Clark-Chalmers Inga/Otto thought experiment (that I freely adapted in my talk) – they got the point so quickly and asked if I’d seen this film. So thanks to the two German scholars who brought it up (sorry I don’t recall your names) I’m now motivated to check out what I anticipate will be an intelligent film.
