The Character of Consciousness

Surely the biggest publishing event in mind – well since this one.

“Empiricalizing” Heidegger

Tony Chemero has kindly sent me these links to a paper he, Dobromir Dotov and Lin Nie have just had published. The first link is to the full paper entitled “A Demonstration of the Transition from Ready-to-Hand to Unready-to-Hand.” The second link is to a popularized version of the aforementioned paper entitled “Your Computer Really Is…

Hayek: cognitive scientist avant la lettre

Here is the uncorrected proof of my essay – do not cite.

The Extended Mind Revisited

Here’s a rare treat to hear David Chalmers on the extended mind – typically, it’s been his co-author Andy Clark who has been exploring this idea in great detail. Here is their original paper;  stay tuned for Rob Rupert’s review of Andy’s Supersizing the Mind to appear in the Journal of Mind and Behavior (as Chalmers…

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.

The Extended Mind and Religious Thought

Here is an uncorrected proof of my introduction to the mini symposium on The Extended Mind to appear in Zygon. Vol. 44, no. 3 (September 2009).

The latest issue of The Journal of Mind and Behavior is now available. I especially want to bring your attention to the Critical Notice on Fred Adams’ and Ken Aizawa’s The Bounds of Cognition, a review essay superbly executed by Justin Fisher. Requests for reprints should be sent to: Professor Justin C. Fisher, Department of Philosophy, Hyer…

A Smorgasbord of “Situated” Projects

There is an excellent collection of papers comprising the latest issue of Topoi (Volume 28, Number 1 / March, 2009). I assume that because of the introduction “Mind Embodied, Embedded, Enacted: One Church or Many?” this issue was pulled together by Julian Kiverstein and Andy Clark. They set up the issue by posing the following…
