Distributed Cognition in Victorian Culture and Modernism

Miranda Anderson, Peter Garratt, and Mark Sprevak


This book brings together 11 essays by international specialists in Victorian culture and modernism. The volume opens with a general introduction to distributed cognition that also sets out its relevance to the humanities, followed by a period-specific introduction. The essays revitalise our reading of Victorian and modernist works in the fields of literature, art, philosophy, material culture and the history of science and technology by bringing to bear recent insights in cognitive science and philosophy of mind on the ways in which cognition is distributed across brain, body and world.

Keywords: Distributed cognition, Victorian, Modernism, Enactivism, Embodied cognition, Extended mind, Aesthetics, Phenomenology, Art, Literature
