    Metaphor and Knowledge Attained Via the Body.John M. Kennedy & John Vervaeke - 1993 - Philosophical Psychology 6 (4):407 – 412.
    Mark Johnson argues in favour of embodied experience as the basis for knowledge. An important implication of his analysis is that these experiences instigate pervasive metaphorical systems. Johnson 's argument involves reductionist problems, chicken-and-egg problems and, at times, unclear criteria for what counts as a basic experience and a metaphor.

    Dialectic Into Dialogos and the Pragmatics of No-Thingness in a Time of Crisis.John Vervaeke & Christopher Mastropietro - 2021 - Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture 5 (2):58-77.
    Nishitani and Neoplatonism both argue that overcoming the nihilism of non-being requires a confrontation with, and cultivation of, the experience of nothingness. This paper argues that the appreciation of nothingness is best realized in the practice of dialectic into dialogos, as adapted from the Socratic tradition. We argue that dialectic equips the self for the confrontation with nihilism, and is best suited to transforming the privative experience of nothingness into a superlative, collective experience of no-thingness. The practice of dialectic into (...)

    Enactivist Big Five Theory.Garri Hovhannisyan & John Vervaeke - 2022 - Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences 21 (2):341-375.
    The distinguishing feature of enactivist cognitive science is arguably its commitment to non-reductionism and its philosophical allegiance to first-person approaches, like phenomenology. The guiding theme of this article is that a theoretically mature enactivism is bound to be humanistic in its articulation, and only by becoming more humanistic can enactivism more fully embody the non-reductionist spirit that lay at its foundation. Our explanatory task is thus to bring forth such an articulation by advancing an enactivist theory of human personality. To (...)

    The enactment of shared agency in teams exploring Mars through rovers.Dan Chiappe & John Vervaeke - forthcoming - Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences:1-25.
    This paper examines the enactment of agency in the Mars Exploration Rover mission. We argue that MER functioned as a distributed cognitive system, made up of highly specialized, though complementary, elements. To explain how a sense of shared agency was attained therein, we augment the distributed account with Tollefsen and Gallagher’s Philosophy of the Social Sciences, 47, 95-110, theory of joint agency. It claims joint actions involve a cascade of shared distal, proximal, and motor intentions, each with its own content (...)

  6. But What Have You Done for Us Lately?: Some Recent Perspectives on Linguistic Nativism.Christopher D. Green & John Vervaeke - 1997 - In David Martel Johnson & Christina E. Erneling (eds.), The Future of the Cognitive Revolution, Chapter 11. Oxford University Press. pp. 149-163.
    The problem with many contemporary criticisms of Chomsky and linguistic nativism is that they are based upon features of the theory that are no longer germane; aspects that have either been superseded by more adequate proposals, or that have been dropped altogether under the weight of contravening evidence. In this paper, rather than rehashing old debates that are voluminously documented elsewhere, we intend to focus on more recent developments. To this end, we have put a premium on references from the (...)

    What Kind of Explanation, If Any, is a Connectionist Net?Christopher D. Green & John Vervaeke - unknown
    Connectionist models of cognition are all the rage these days. They are said to provide better explanations than traditional symbolic computational models in a wide array of cognitive areas, from perception to memory to language to reasoning to motor action. But what does it actually mean to say that they "explain" cognition at all? In what sense do the dozens of nodes and hundreds of connections in a typical connectionist network explain anything? It is the purpose of this paper to (...)
