Concepts of Cognition and Consciousness: four voices

  • Bonnie Nardi
Keywords: cognition, consciousness, neuroscience, cognitive science, activity theory, distributed cognition approach


This paper considers theories of cognition and consciousness in four traditions: neuroscience, cognitive science, activity theory and the distributed cognition approach. It is most concerned with social theories of consciousness—activity theory and distributed cognition—but briefly considers biological and computational models as a foil or backdrop against which the social theories stand out more clearly.
