Thanks Martin--always useful to see a contrary perspective. The descriptor
says that the book:
"Articulates and defends the "mark of the cognitive", a common sense theory
used to distinguish between cognitive and non-cognitive processes"

I always wonder about "common sense" arguments, and the author's belief that
they are beyond culture.

The Bounds of Cognition

An alarming number of philosophers and cognitive scientists have argued that
mind extends beyond the brain and body. This book evaluates these arguments
and suggests that, typically, it does not.
