Richard Brown and Pete Mandik have posted SpaceTimeMind's newest episode, "The Extended Mind (with Lara Beaty)." Here's the capsule summary:
Vygotskian developmental psychologist Lara Beaty joins philosopher-scientists Richard Brown and Pete Mandik to tackle questions such as: Is the mind bigger than the brain? Does conceptual thought and even consciousness require the use of language or other sorts of social interaction? Which is morally preferable: making animals smarter or making humans stupider? Would it be totally cool to eat somebody who volunteered for it?
