The Extended Mind:
You will need to buy tickets
- Though Descartes may have imagined the mind to be a thing separate and apart from the material world and from the body, an increasing number of psychologists and philosophers believe that to understand how the mind really works, we must understand it as both embedded in a body and as situated in an environment. According to some, in fact, the body and the environment do not just house the mind, but an essential part of the mind in the sense that workings of the mind depend upon and exploit the body and the environment. Join John, Ken, and their guest, noted linguist and cognitive scientist, George Lakoff, as they explore the extended mind, embodied cognition, and the situated self.
