Mark of the Cognitive Posts

Last year I blogged through some of the principal ideas that went into a paper on Noë's Enactivism.  (Link to the paper below.)  Thanks to Gennady Erlikhman and Anthony Morse for helpful comments via the blog and drafts.  (Thanks as well to Nivedita Gangopadhyay and Larry Shapiro for comments on a draft.)

Now I'm sort of blogging my way through ideas regarding the mark of the cognitive here.  I'm not yet sure there is a paper here though.  Feedback welcome.
