Radicalizing Enactivism

This chapter considers the implications of Radical Enactive Cognition for thinking about phenomenal consciousness. Does REC imply the conclusions about the extent of phenomenality that many enactivists argue for? Is there any compelling reason to suppose that phenomenality is extensive? The answers are complex. The chapter attempts to correct some confusions about the exact value of the enactivist strategy of going wide, and looks to environmental features when explaining why the phenomenal characters of experiences are as they are.

Keywords:   Radical Enactive Cognition, phenomenal consciousness, phenomenality, enactivist strategy, experiences
