The Reach of Radical Embodied or Enactive Cognition (REC)
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Many forms of cognition can and should be understood without invoking content-involving representations. That is the claim of Radical Embodied or Enactive Cognitive Science (REC). REC offers a serious challenge to the representational/computational status quo in cognitive science.
This conference explores if its radical claim can be argumentatively supported and challenged, and whether it must be toned down. It examines whether REC might be true of basic cognition, including perception. But it also considers whether and how it might be extended so as to accommodate forms of cognition traditionally conceived as totally out of its reach, such as offline or symbolic cognition. It asks to what extent and how REC will bring changes of practice and method in cognitive science and beyond.
