Abstract:

Our species has been a maker and user of tools for over two million years,
but "cognitive technology" began with language. Cognition is thinking, and
thinking has been "distributed" for at least the two hundred millennia that
we have been using speech to interact and collaborate, allowing us to do
collectively far more than any of us could have done individually. The
invention of writing six millennia ago and print six centuries ago has
distributed cognition still more widely and quickly, among people as well
as their texts. But in recent decades something radically new has been
happening: Advanced cognitive technologies, especially computers and the
Worldwide Web, are beginning to redistribute cognition in unprecedented
ways, not only among people and static texts, but among people and
dynamical machines. This not only makes possible new forms of human
collaboration, but new forms of cognition. This book examines the nature
and prospects of distributed cognition, providing a conceptual framework
for understanding it, and showcasing case studies of its development. This
volume was originally published as a Special Issue of Pragmatics &
Cognition
(14:2, 2006).
