  • Manuel Heras-Escribano
Part of the New Directions in Philosophy and Cognitive Science book series (NDPCS)


In this chapter, I offer a sketch of some key aspects that should be taken into account for proposing a theory of agency based on the main contributions of the ecological approach. In this sense, the conclusions of this chapter are far from offering a full-blown approach to agency from an ecological standpoint; I simply aim to provide some ideas and contributions from which elaborating such a general view in the future.
