Footnotes to Plato in Dialogue with John Searle on Consciousness
by Adam Robbert
A fantastic dialogue HERE. Matt (Footnotes to Plato) ask a series of thought provoking questions regarding 1) the extended mind/embodied cognition/enactivist paradigms in contradistinction to behavioral approaches in neurobiology and 2) The ontological questions that run parallel to the problem of consciousness in current cognitive science research. Matt (as he should!) draws on Alfred North Whitehead to ask Searle if he thinks current paradigms in cognitive science need to re-think their understanding of matter in light of something like a panexperientialist ontology.
