This chapter recapitulates the main ideas offered throughout this work in a systematic and succinct way, and it also fills some gaps that have not been sufficiently explained in previous chapters. First, in Sect. 8.1, I show in different sections how these ideas relate to the pragmatist and evolutionary framework of Dewey’s naturalism. Second, in Sect. 8.2, I comment how the main ideas of ecological agency, dispositionalism, and normativity can be organized in order to offer a consistent basis for understanding different cognitive phenomena beyond perception and action. Finally, in Sect. 8.3, I assess the relations among phenomenology, enactivism, and ecological psychology and how these three approaches can be methodologically related for offering a well-structured post-cognitivist framework on cognition.
