Anderson}, title = {Embodied cognition: A field guide}, journal = {Artificial Intelligence}, pages = {91--130}, year = {2003}, url = {http://cogprints.org/3949/}, abstract = {The nature of cognition is being re-considered. Instead of emphasizing formal operations on abstract symbols, the new approach foregrounds the fact that cognition is, rather, a situated activity, and suggests that thinking beings ought therefore be considered first and foremost as acting beings. The essay reviews recent work in Embodied Cognition, provides a concise guide to its principles, attitudes and goals, and identifies the physical grounding project as its central research focus. } }
