Mind & Life 2: Sociality and Participatory Sense-making

We continue the enactive theme with an emphasis on explanation at multiple levels.

*De Jaegher, H. and Di Paolo, E. (2007) Participatory Sense-Making: An Enactive Approach to Social Cognition, Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences 6(4):485-507

which can be read in conjunction with the Froese and DiPaolo article above.

and in the following article, Tom Froese argues that “the computational theory of mind can indeed be replaced with an alternative framework centered on the notion of life-mind continuity, but only by incorporating the constitutive role played by sociality.”

*Froese, T. (2011). Breathing new life into cognitive science. Avant. The Journal of the Philosophical-Interdisciplinary Vanguard, 2(1): 113-129

My own work is conducted within this kind of framework:

Cummins, F. (2014). Voice,(inter-) subjectivity, and real time recurrent interaction. Frontiers in Psychology, 5.

I also wrote a short web essay entitled “Genitum, non factum: Thoughts on a biological Turing test” which ranges over enactive concerns in a somewhat ruminative manner.
