Becoming Human: A Contingent Transcranialist Perspective

Extended Mind theorists (Contingent Transcranialists) claim that the  
physical mechanisms of mind are not exclusively intracranial and that  
genuine cognitive systems can extend into the cogniser's physical,  
sociocultural and technological environments. They further claim that  
extended cognitive systems must include the deep functional integration of  
external environmental resources and internal neural resources. Contingent  
intracranialists, in contrast, accept the role of multiple environmental  
resources in the scaffolding or support of cognition but reject the  
metaphysical thesis of contingent transcranialism (CT). In this paper, I  
provide evidence to support the metaphysical thesis of CT; it relates to  
the concurrent development of human emotionality, language and, by  
implication, symbolic thought. Drawing on insights primarily from  
developmental psychology, I show how a limited range of shared  
developmental mechanisms results in the concurrent development of at least  
some aspects of human emotionality and language. In light of this analysis,  
I argue that the development of human emotionality, language (and, by  
implication) symbolic thought is a world-to-brain transcranialist
