I present reasons for adding an 'embodiment' criterion to the list defended by Anderson and Lebiere. I also entertain a likely objection contending that embodiment is merely a type of 'dynamic behavior', and is therefore covered by the target article. In either case, it turns out that neither connectionism nor ACT-R do particularly well when it comes to embodiment.
