07 Nov 2017 Mind in World: A History of Distributed Cognition 

Distributed cognition means that the mind is not ‘brainbound’ but extends across brain, body and world.

Join Dr Miranda Anderson for the following lectures in Japan if you’re interested in:

 ・       distributed cognition

 ・       a history of distributed cognition in Europe

 ・       a future project on the history of distributed cognition in Japan and Asia
