Bounds of Cognition by Frederick Adams
Book DescriptionAn alarming number of philosophers and cognitive scientists have argued that mind extends beyond the brain and body. This book evaluates these arguments and suggests that, typically, it does not. * A timely and relevant study that exposes the need to develop a more sophisticated theory of cognition, while pointing to a bold new direction in exploring the nature of cognition * Articulates and defends the "mark of the cognitive", a common sense theory used to distinguish between cognitive and non-cognitive processes * Challenges the current popularity of extended cognition theory through critical analysis and by pointing out fallacies and shortcoming in the literature * Stimulates discussions that will advance debate about the nature of cognition in the cognitive sciences

The Bounds of Cognition defends a theory of "the mark of the cognitive," a common sense approach to cognitive science that differentiates between cognitive and non-cognitive processes. Addressing the limits of the embodied mind, the mark of the cognitive is a refreshing alternative approach to extended cognition.
