Abstract

In this feature essay, Miranda Anderson reflects on how notions of the mind and the self, and the key role that embodiment and environment play in constituting them, vary across disciplinary and historical spans. Through a discussion of her past and present research projects, The Renaissance Extended Mind and A History of Distributed Cognition, she examines the ethical dimensions of our extended selves and explores literary language as a catalyst for ‘perceptual flights into and beyond the usual constraints of our own imaginations’.
