Lisbon Mind & Reasoning Group

The Lisbon Mind & Reasoning Group is a group of philosophers and cognitive scientists dedicated to understanding knowledge, reasoning and the mind in their full compass. While members of the group have different perspectives and backgrounds, we are particularly interested in epistemological issues, when approached from a contextualist perspective, and in the possibilities and problems afforded by 4E cognitive science, which considers the mind as embodied, embedded, extended and enactive. We work along these lines in order to help develop a new post-Cognitivist understanding of mind, knowledge, emotions, reasoning and agency. Especially, we focus on the prospects of a situated approach to epistemology, human minds and the dynamics of cognitive systems and how these fit into the social, material and artefactual world.
