Menary: Clark as the Originator of the Extended Mind
Near the beginning of the discussion, Menary bills Clark as the originator of the EM idea. So, for at least some advocates of EM, perhaps, Gibson, Maturana & Varela, and Merleau-Ponty are not the originators. Which probably goes to show some of the diversity of opinion in the EM world. Or, it could just be that this discussion was intended to revolve around Clark & Chalmers' (1988), so that some extra praise for it is in order.
