Abstract
Dr. Daniel Hutto argues against some of the deepest and msot prevalent views on how we think. Hutto questions the widely accepted idea that our minds are in our heads and their contents are furnished by our senses, that eyes and ears transmit information from the world that is received by the brain, and that our brains then compile this information to construct models and representations of the outer world, allowing us to deal with it intelligently. Hutto discusses the possibility that brains do not take in and process any information at all; perhaps, instead, having a mind is more a matter of continually and actively engaging with selective aspects of our environment in sensitive ways.
