Some important new publications on the Skilled Intentionality Framework for Ecological-Enactive Cognitive Science

In 2018 we have published several new academic papers to develop aspects of the Skilled Intentionality Framework (SIF) for Embodied Cognition and our new approach of Ecological-Enactive Cognitive Science more in particular.

In two papers published in philosophy journal Synthese we deal with topics that are seen as central for understanding so-called ‘higher’ cognition: anticipation, planning, and dealing with the absent and not-yet existing. We have also collaborated with the renowned neuroscientist Karl Friston to model the complex joint agent-environment system that is at the core of our approack. Finally, for a chapter for the Oxford Handbook Series we have written an introduction to the Skilled Intentionality Framework.
