Andy Clark and His Critics

Some years ago, Clark broached a complementarian model of language, in contrast to a more traditional translation model, which he then linked to the hypothesis of extended cognition. This chapter’s review of this theory begins with an invitation to clarify the complementarian model with respect to a traditional distinction between cognition and behavior. It will next provide some reason to revise, or perhaps merely clarify, the putative role of language in the exercise of some metacognitive abilities. Then it will revisit what looks to be a problematic argument for extended cognition.

Keywords:   behavior, cognition, complementarian model of language, extended cognition, translation model of language
