New enactive article on sensory modalities.
Some shameless self-promotion.
I’ve just had an article published in the Journal of Consciousness Studies on what an enactive approach to sensory modalities would look like. I use the account to make some generic arguments about the continuity between the supposed “lower” and “higher” cognitive functions that many cognitive scientists are fond of separating from one another.
I’ve presented the main ideas in the paper at least twice in e-intentionality seminars (possibly three times, actually, but my memory is a little hazy) over the years.
I don’t actually have a electronic copy of the published version, but if you’re interested there’s a submission draft here:
Also, since submitting the article I’ve become more familiar with and impressed by ecological psychology and felt the need to rectify the approach’s absence from the article by writing a kind of appendix to the paper on my own blog, here.
