This introduction aims to offer a brief but general overview that helps readers to capture the spirit of what does it mean to understand cognition from the perspective of affordances and ecological psychology, rather than aiming at a more detailed explanation of the ecological approach, which will be offered in Chapter  2. For this reason, sometimes I introduce some key terms rather quick, or even offer some definitions that are allegorical and suggestive, but this is just for the sake of the narrative.
