Special issue on The Social and Enactive Mind
A new special issue of Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences has just been published. The topic is The Social and the Enactive Mind. The special issue is one of the outcomes for the Battle 08 workshop on enactive approaches to social cognition and all of the contributions have grown from initial conversations and ideas for collaborations that began during some of the special sessions in that workshop. Once again, thanks to the workshop participants for their enthusiasm, to the contributors to the special issue, to the expert reviewers and the editors of the journal.
