Given the recent post at Archive Fire concerning enactivist, embodied theories of mind, I am considering engaging such literature. Regular readers should know that much of my work is in pragmatic theories of representation, phenomenology, and the process metaphysics to get such projects off the ground.
Are there readers out there quite familiar with the strain of neopragmatism that addresses these issues? I would welcome any thoughts or advice. For my part, it would require bridging the neopragmatic (them) vs. neoclassical pragmatic chasm (me), which is also the difference between highly appropriative analytic philosophy versus pragmatist and Americanist philosophy. They are two utterly different traditions of philosophy, which is something that I rarely see analytic neopragmatists appreciate.
What would I offer? The process metaphysics necessary to achieve a realist phenomenology, which is compatible (translatable?) with post-Husserlian phenomenology and contemporary science. To be honest, many of the basic moves of enactivist, embodied theories of mind are a century old, and much of that work is a return to what began during classical pragmatism's time. Yet the return is usually an appropriation without a full understanding of classical or neoclassical (contemporary) pragmatism.
I need a good dancing partner...
