Zahidi K. & Myin E. (2016) Radically enactive numerical cognition. In: Etzelmüller G. & Twews C. (eds.) Embodiment in evolution and culture. Mohr Siebeck, Tübingen: 57–71. Fulltext at
We deal with the general question of how culture affects cognition by looking at numerical cognition. After presenting radical enactivism, according to which contentful cognition arises only with the emergence of truth telling practices, we confront recent research about the origins of numerical cognition. We contest readings of some of the empirical data, according to which numerical cognition predates culture. We argue that REC-friendly interpretations of the data are not only possible but preferable, as they avoid the staunch theoretical problems which plague cognitivist readings.
