Beyond the Brain: Embodied, Situated and Distributed Cognition
Benoit Hardy-Vallée, Nicolas Payette
Cambridge Scholars Pub., 2008 - Philosophy - 245 pages
Cognitive science faces a major methodological and conceptual change since the 90's. Whereas the brain was traditionally conceived as being the only seat of intelligence, many researches emphasize the entrenchment of the brain in body, context and culture. In 2006, a conference was held at the Universite du Quebec a Montreal (UQAM) and allowed researchers from various fields to interact and discuss such issues. Cognitio 2006 was an occasion for philosophers, cognitive scientists and biologists to present the latest developments in their discipline, and this book aims at providing a general overview of current research on embodied, situated and distributed cognition.
