%A Mr Tom Froese %J 50 Years of AI %T On the Role of AI in the Ongoing Paradigm Shift within the Cognitive Sciences %X This paper supports the view that the ongoing shift from orthodox to embodied-embedded cognitive science has been significantly influenced by the experimental results generated by AI research. Recently, there has also been a noticeable shift toward enactivism, a paradigm which radicalizes the embodied-embedded approach by placing autonomous agency and lived subjectivity at the heart of cognitive science. Some first steps toward a clarification of the relationship of AI to this further shift are outlined. It is concluded that the success of enactivism in establishing itself as a mainstream cognitive science research program will depend less on progress made in AI research and more on the development of a phenomenological pragmatics. %K AI, cognitive science, paradigm shift, enactivism, phenomenology %P 63-75 %E Mr M Lungarella %D 2007 %I Springer-Verlag %L cogprints5778
