The Mind Beyond Itself

In Dan Sperber (ed.), Metarepresentations: A Multidisciplinary Perspective. Oxford University Press (2000)
Abstract
This paper argues that the metarepresentational systems we posses are wide or extended, rather than individualistic. There are two basic ideas. The first is that metarepresentation inherits its width from the mental representation of its objects. The second is that mental processing often operates on internal and external symbols, and this suggests that cognitive systems extend beyond the heads that house them.
