Sven Arvidson, director and associate professor of Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies, presented “Globally Extended Cognition: Philosophy of Mind Meets Earth Remote Sensing” at the 41st annual conference of the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies in Amsterdam. Integrating concepts from philosophy and earth science, “Globally Extended Cognition” is cognition by the earth scientist—developed with brain, body, and remote sensing tools—about the entire earth system rather than a specific place on earth or a single discipline. His sister, earth scientist Theresa Arvidson, was co-presenter.
