Five decades after the onset of the cognitive revolution, cognitive scientists are still struggling to define cognition. Successive paradigms in cognitive science have offered increasingly vague definitions to expand the scope of cognitive explanations. 

We invite contributions exploring any and all issues that can move us toward an answer to the question, “what is cognition?”   Contributions are welcome to address a particular view already championed in the literature or bring forward original suggestions on how we might produce an adequate notion of cognition in philosophy and the cognitive sciences.
