What does "cognitive" mean to you?
Just curious... what counts as "cognitive" to you? I've been reading a bit of the embodied cognition literature and I find statements like this rather odd: "the traditional conceptualization of cognition as a stage in the perception–cognition–action pipeline." Is cognition just high-level stuff? I don't see it that way. Perception is cognition. Action is cognition. Language is cognition. Categorization, memory, attention, are all cognition. Is this "cognitive sandwich" notion just a straw man given modern conceptualization of cognition?
