It’s got good information, but I got bored with it; it definitely isn’t my favorite Clark book and I think his writing talents lie outside of the textbook world.

Mindware – Paperback – Andy Clark – Oxford University Press

Previous Publication Date s December Rediscovering Empathy Karsten Stueber Limited preview – Handy textbooks and useful for reference and papers for students of philosophy. I would make one suggestion and that would be in regards to AI.

Starting with the vision mlndware mindware as software and debates between realists, instrumentalists, and eliminativists, Andy Clark takes students on a no-holds-barred journey through connectionism, dynamical systems, and real-world robotics before moving on to the frontiers of cognitive technologies, enactivism, predictive coding, and the extended mind.

In this vein, the only section of the book I considered worthwhile was the second appendix, “Consciousness and the Meta-Hard Problem,” though the thoughts are at the forefront of philosophy today.


This updated and significantly expanded second edition is a major upgrade.

It is presented as a no-holds-barred journey from early. Apart from that, Clark does a nice job breaking down some of Daniel Dennett’s more opaque theories, especially from the latter’s book Consciousness Explained –a book that I still regard with trepidation I’ve only managed the first few pages several different times.

See this thread for more information. The second part is actually on contemporary cognitive science, but it’s not very well written and kind of boring to read.
