Extended mathematical cognition: external representations with non-derived content

Karina Vold, Dirk Schlimm
2019 Synthese  
But some disagree, insisting that 'non-derived', or 'original', content is the mark of the cognitive and that only biologically instantiated representational vehicles can have non-derived content, while  ...  the contents of all extra-neural representational vehicles are derived and thus lie outside the scope of the cognitive.  ...  External representations with non-derived content To make our case for external representations with non-derived content, we will first defend content externalism with respect to mathematical knowledge  ...

Extending Fuzzy Cognitive Maps With Tensor-Based Distance Metrics

Georgios Drakopoulos, Andreas Kanavos, Phivos Mylonas Mylonas, Panagiotis Pintelas
2020 Mathematics  
Cognitive maps are high level representations of the key topological attributes of real or abstract spatial environments progressively built by a sequence of noisy observations.  ...  Currently such maps play a crucial role in cognitive sciences as it is believed this is how clusters of dedicated neurons at hippocampus construct internal representations.  ...  Acknowledgments: The authors gratefully acknowledge the support of NVIDIA corporation with the donation of Titan Xp GPU used in this research.  ...

Cognitive Computation sans Representation [chapter]

Paul Schweizer
2017 Philosophical Studies Series  
The Representational Theory of Mind (RTM) holds that representational content is the key feature in distinguishing mental from non-mental systems.  ...  Hence 'content' is at most a convenient meta-level gloss, projected from the outside by human theorists, which itself can play no role in cognitive processing.  ...  The second is commitment to the traditionally derived Representational Theory of Mind (RTM), which holds that representational content is the key feature in distinguishing mental from non-mental systems  ...

Situated cognition

Wolff-Michael Roth, Alfredo Jornet
2013 Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Cognitive Science  
We conclude with recommendations for interdisciplinary approaches to the nature of cognition.  ...  and often works without representations.  ...  that some cognitive processes may be seen as extending beyond the skin of the individual agent to include external aspects.  ...

Loops, constitution, and cognitive extension

S. Orestis Palermos
2014 Cognitive Systems Research  
Attempting to address the 'causal-constitution' fallacy, mathematically oriented philosophers of mind have previously suggested that the presence of non-linear relations between the inner and the outer  ...  The 'causal-constitution' fallacy, the 'cognitive bloat' worry, and the persisting theoretical confusion about the fundamental difference between the hypotheses of embedded (HEMC) and extended (HEC) cognition  ...  I am also thankful to two anonymous referees for Cognitive Systems Research.  ...

Extended Cognitive System and Epistemic Subject

Barbara Trybulec
2015 Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric  
The epistemic subject is not extended because of the casual coupling with external informational artifacts which extend his mind from inside the head and into the world.  ...  Cognitive Integration is compatible with virtue epistemology of John Greco's agent reliabilism.  ...  Adams and Aizawa argue that cognition is constituted by causal processes that involve intrinsic, non-derived content.  ...

The extended mind argument against phenomenal intentionality

Cody Turner
2021 Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences  
, while the second maintains that no conscious states extend into the environment.  ...  The argument, which I'll call the extended mind argument against phenomenal intentionality, is centered around two claims: the first asserts that some source intentional states extend into the environment  ...  mental states with derived intentionality can be extended.  ...

The Virtual Team Alliance (VTA): Extending Galbraith?s Information-Processing Model to Account for Goal Incongruency

Jan Thomsen, Raymond E. Levitt, Clifford I. Nass
2005 Computational and mathematical organization theory  
VTA extends Galbraith's framework implemented in VDT in two ways: (1) it addresses less routine tasks with some flexibility in how they are performed, and (2) it treats project participants as teleological  ...  professionals with potentially incongruent goals.  ...  In this case the programmers wanted to fix all bugs, whereas the project manager was willing to ship the software with known, non-serious bugs to meet the promised release date.  ...

The Goldilocks problem and extended cognition

2010 Cognitive Systems Research  
stimuli into representations, and representations into physical effects.  ...  According to the hypothesis of extended cognition (HEC), parts of the extrabodily world can constitute cognitive operations.  ...  HEC is sometimes described as the thesis of "vehicle externalism" (Hurley, 1998) . A vehicle of cognition is a repeatable physical structure that bears representational content.  ...

Socially Extended Cognition and Shared Intentionality

Holger Lyre
2018 Frontiers in Psychology  
It is finally outlined how social content externalism can in principle be grounded in socially extended cognition.  ...  The paper looks at the intersection of extended cognition and social cognition.  ...  Our special focus will be on the connection between extended cognition and "shared intentionality" (broadly construed the view that intentions, goals and actions might be shared among cooperating individuals  ...

Introduction to "The Material Bases of Cognition"

Kenneth Aizawa
2013 Minds and Machines  
These earlier collaborative works focused on the cognitivist idea that cognition is a matter of specific sorts of manipulations of non-derived representations.  ...  For a discussion of the idea that non-derived content might be an essential feature of cognitive processes, see, for example, Aizawa (2001, 2008) and Clark (2005) .18 Cf. Wegner et al. (2004) .  ...

Tolerant enactivist cognitive science

Thomas Raleigh
2018 Philosophical Explorations  
Enactivist (Embodied, Embedded, etc.) approaches in cognitive science and philosophy of mind are sometimes, though not always, conjoined with an anti-representational commitment.  ...  A weaker anti-representational claim is that ascribing representational content to internal/sub-personal processes is not compulsory when giving psychological explanations.  ...  TEC agrees with REC that representational content need not be appealed to in cognitive-science explanations.  ...

Cognition, Construction and Culture: Visual Theories in the Sciences

David Gooding
2004 Journal of Cognition and Culture  
The existence of common features behind the diversity of visual representations suggests a common dynamical structure for visual thinking, showing how visual representations facilitate cognitive processes  ...  in ways that achieve other kinds of match: between a representation and the cognitive demands of a task (such as pattern matching or mental rotation) or between an emerging representation and the social  ...  Internal and external representations This interplay of internal (mental) and external (public) representations is typical of situated cognition.  ...

Building Cognition: The Construction of Computational Representations for Scientific Discovery

Sanjay Chandrasekharan, Nancy J. Nersessian
2014 Cognitive Science  
Accounting for such discoveries requires a distributed cognition (DC) analysis, as DC focuses on the roles played by external representations in cognitive processes.  ...  However, DC analyses by-and-large have not examined scientific discovery, and mostly focus on memory offloading, particularly how the use of existing external representations change the nature of cognitive  ...  Our analysis has benefited from discussions with Wendy Newstetter(co-PI), Lisa Osbeck, and Vrishali Subramanian. We thank the members of Lab G for granting us interviews.  ...
