Froese T. (2011) Breathing new life into cognitive science. Avant. The Journal of the Philosophical-Interdisciplinary Vanguard 2/2011: 113–129. Fulltext at https://cepa.info/412
In this article I take an unusual starting point from which to argue for a unified cognitive science, namely a position defined by what is sometimes called the “life-mind continuity thesis.” Accordingly, rather than taking a widely accepted starting point for granted and using it in order to propose answers to some well-defined questions, I must first establish that the idea of life-mind continuity can amount to a proper starting point at all. To begin with, I therefore assess the conceptual tools that are available to construct a theory of mind on this basis. By drawing on insights from a variety of disciplines, especially from a combination of existential phenomenology and organism-centered biology, I argue that mind can indeed be conceived as rooted in life, but only if we accept at the same time that social interaction plays a constitutive role in our cognitive capacities.
