Eric Schwitzgebel - "If Materialism Is True, the United States Is Probably Conscious"

Abstract:
There seems to be no principled reason to deny entityhood to spatially distributed but informationally integrated beings. The United States can be considered as a concrete, spatially distributed but informationally integrated entity. Considered as such, the United States is at least a candidate for the literal possession of real psychological states, including phenomenal consciousness or subjective experience. The question, then, is whether it meets plausible materialistic criteria for consciousness. My suggestion is that if those criteria are liberal enough to include both small mammals and weird alien species that exhibit sophisticated linguistic behavior, then the United States probably does meet those criteria. The United States is massively informationally interconnected and responds in sophisticated, goal-directed ways to its surroundings. Its internal representational states are functionally responsive to its environment and not randomly formed or assigned artificially from outside by the acts of an external user. And the United States exhibits complex linguistic behavior, including issuing self-reports and self-critiques that reveal a highly-developed ability to monitor its evolving internal and external conditions.

Ben Alpers, Embodiment and Intellectual History, 20.02.2012

U.S. Intellectual History. The Blog of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History (S-USIH)

"Most often, I think, these embodied aspects of the people about whom we write get relegated to introductory paragraphs, in which we describe the person we're writing about before turning to the more important matters of the ideas (and texts!) they produced. But I suspect, at least in certain cases, these embodied aspects of intellectual production are more important than we usually make them out to be. But I'm not sure what to do with this thought in my own historical practice."

Cyborg Anthropology. A Digital Resource

What is Cyborg Anthropology?

Humans are surrounded by built objects and networks. So profoundly are humans altering their biological and physical landscapes that some have openly suggested that the proper object of anthropological study should be cyborgs rather than humans, for, as Donna Haraway says, "we are all cyborgs now".
Cyborg Anthropology takes the view that most of modern human life is a product of both human and non-human objects.
How we interact with machines and technology in many ways defines who we are. Cyborg Anthropology is a framework for understanding the effects of objects and technology on humans and culture. This site is designed to be a resource for those tools.
Anthropology, the study of humans, has traditionally concentrated on discovering the process of evolution through which the human came to be (physical anthropology), or on understanding the beliefs, languages, and behaviors of past or present human groups (archaeology, linguistics, cultural anthropology).
This site currently has 879 articles for you to browse and read.

Alvin I. Goldman, A Moderate Approach to Embodied Cognitive Science, 2012

Alvin I. Goldman, A Moderate Approach to Embodied Cognitive Science, 2012 | Cognition sociale | Scoop.it

Abstract

Many current programs for cognitive science sail under the banner of “embodied cognition.” These programs typically seek to distance themselves from standard cognitive science. The present proposal for a conception of embodied cognition is less radical than most, indeed, quite compatible with many versions of traditional cognitive science. Its rationale is based on two elements, each of which is theoretically plausible and empirically well-founded. The first element invokes the idea of “bodily formats,” i.e., representational codes primarily utilized in forming interoceptive or directive representations of one’s bodily states and activities. The second element appeals to wideranging evidence that the brain reuses or redeploys cognitive processes having different original uses. When the redeployment theme is applied to bodily formats of representation, they jointly provide for the possibility that body-coded cognition is a very pervasive sector of cognition.

Yves Clot, Vygotski maintenant, 2012

Lev Vygotski (1896-1934), psychologue pour enfant, pédagogue, et intellectuel russe, diagnostiquait en 1926 une crise dans la psychologie1, du fait de l'extrême division de ses conceptions (idéaliste, matérialiste), de ses méthodes (expérimentale à tendance mécaniste réduisant le psychologique au biologique, introspective à tendance subjective...) et de ses objets d'études (le comportement, la conscience, l'inconscient...). Il proposait de solutionner cette crise en avançant une psychologie matérialiste, qui considère la relation corps/esprit non comme dualiste, mais moniste, et qui considère « l'individuel chez l'homme non pas comme le contraire du social, mais comme sa forme supérieure ». Qu'en est-il aujourd'hui des constats et solutions apportées par Vygotski, presque un siècle plus tard ?
