Book review: Feeling Extended: Sociality as Extended Body-Becoming-Mind by D Robinson

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In Feeling Extended, Douglas Robinson discusses the extended cognition thesis (EC), with the aim of establishing the view that affect is extended transcranially and tends to result in intersubjective conation. The author is concerned with showing that the primary area in which minds extend is phenomenally: „affective-becoming-conative sociality‟, so Robinson argues, is the real dimension in which the „body-becoming-mind‟ extends.
