Clancey W. J. (2008) Scientific antecedents of situated cognition. In: Robbins P. & Aydede M. (eds.) Cambridge handbook of situated cognition. Cambridge University Press, New York: 11-34. Fulltext at
This review article argues that “situated cognition” is a manifestation of a broadly shared perspective on the nature of causality in complex systems. Crosscutting disciplinary themes reveal that human cognitive processes are inherently social, interactive, personal, biological, and neurological, which is to say that a variety of systems develop and depend on one another in complex ways. The concepts, perspectives, and theoretical frameworks that influenced the situated cognition of the 1980s are still alive in potential for thoughtful reconsideration in tomorrow’s cognitive research.
