Reviews the book, Reconstructing the Cognitive World: The Next Step by Michael Wheeler (2005). In this ambitious book, the author considers afresh the conceptual foundations of cognitive science, with the aim of carving out a place for what he calls 'embodied-embedded cognitive science'- a rival and successor, to orthodox computational approaches. The central argument of the book is that the embodied-embedded framework promises to resolve the frame problem that famously plagues cognitive science- the problem of explaining how intelligent agents rapidly update and access huge stores of knowledge in ways that are sensitive to their needs and goals. The author's book is a rewarding read, brimming with careful argument and illuminating discussions. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA )
