What is it about?

Situated cognition examines how the human mind is affected by being in a physical body and a natural and sociomaterial environment, influencing how a person perceives, learns, knows, reasons, decides, and acts. Within the generic term “situated cognition” are various distinctions in which cognition is embodied, embedded, extended, distributed, dynamical, or enactive. In this entry, these views of cognition are explored through influential works in anthropology, philosophy, and cognitive science.
