Description - Being There by Andy Clark
The author of this book claims that brain, body and world are united in a complex and extended computational activity. The book weaves these several threads into one and goes on to address foundational questions concerning the tools and techniques needed to make sense of the embodied mind. Clark brings together ideas and techniques from robotics, neuroscience, infant psychology and artificial intelligence to address a broad range of adaptive behaviours, from cockroach locomotion to the role of linguistic artifacts in higher-level thought.
