Mind in World: A History of Distributed Cognition - lectures in Kyoto, Osaka & Tokyo from 8 to 14 December 2017

Distributed cognition means that the mind is not ‘brainbound’ but extends across brain, body and world. Our project examines evidence of distributed cognition from Classical Greece to Modernism in Europe. Now we want to look at Japan and Asia. Join Dr Miranda Anderson for the following lectures in Japan (8 December in Kyoto, 11 December in Osaka, 14 December in Tokyo) if  interested:  ・       distributed cognition

・       a history of distributed cognition in Europe

・       a future project on the history of distributed cognition in Japan and Asia
