This chapter situates the embodied cognition (EC) approaches of extended mind and enactivism in relation to pragmatism. Despite some disagreements, highlighted in Chapter 2, enactivism and extended mind share some common ground in their pragmatist roots. The argument here is not only that pragmatism (especially as found in the work of John Dewey) offers the possibility of rapprochement between these versions of EC, but also that it offers resources for responding to some of the common objections raised against them, involving concepts of causality, constitution, and the ‘mark of the mental’. Responding to these concerns points in the direction of reconceiving the notion of intentionality.

Keywords:   pragmatism, phenomenology, Peirce, Dewey, Mead, situation, intentionality, mark of the mental
