New Book from MIT: Feeling Extended

At Amazon.

This looks to work on some different assumptions than are found in many discussions of EC.

Incidentally, Brian McLaughlin mentioned to me in passing that Extended Cognition is big in Asia.  I did not really know that, but perhaps this is one small piece of that.

From the dark corners of my c.v.:

I vaguely remember the paper, although I had forgotten the author's name:
Commentary on Andrew Wilson’s “A Methodological Alternative to the Assumption of Mental Representation.” For the Society for Philosophy and Psychology meetings, June 19-21, 2001 at the University of Cincinnati.

Extended Mind and After: Socially Extended Mind and Actor-Network

Integrative Psychological and Behavioral Science
August 2013

Tetsuya Kono

The abstract to this paper begins, "The concept of extended mind has been impressively developed over the last 10 years by many philosophers and cognitive scientists."

Now, maybe I am taking this comment too seriously or too literally and maybe I am just biased here, but maybe readers can give me some insight here.  What do the proponents of EM think have been the "impressive developments" in EM over the last 10 years  (And, here I want to read "impressive developments" straight, by which I mean things that are positive and important developments in EM.)  Thanks in advance for your proposals.
