/*GAP Satellite Workshop*/

*Mental **Representation**, Mechanistic Explanation **& Situated

Friday, 21st September 2018

(subsequent to the main GAP10 program from 17. – 20.09.2018)

University of Cologne, Seminargebäude

The single-day workshop brings together young researchers from the
DFG-funded Graduiertenkolleg on “Situated Cognition” and experts working
on issues concerning 4-E cognition. We will tackle central
meta-questions as well as discuss core applications of 4E-approaches.
Meta-questions that will be addressed in the workshop concern the nature
and role of mental representations in cognitive processing, the
causation/constitution distinction in accounts of extended cognition,
and the compatibility of extended cognition and mechanistic explanation.
As application cases, we will focus on the relevance of situatedness for
social and moral cognition.
