Walmsley L. D. (2019) Lessons from a virtual slime: Marginal mechanisms, minimal cognition and radical enactivism. Adaptive Behavior Online First: 1059712318824544. Fulltext at
Radical enactivism (REC) and similar embodied and enactive approaches to the mind deny that cognition is fundamentally representational, skull-bound and mechanistic in its organisation. In this article, I argue that modellers may still adopt a mechanistic strategy to produce explanations that are compatible with REC. This argument is scaffolded by a multi-agent model of the true slime mould Physarum polycephalum.
