An 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
