Abstract

We have investigated a model of the mind’s cognitive relation to its environment that does not assume from the start that one has interior states with semantic content. According to the resultant theory, the mind’s states can be understood not as about the world, but rather as absorbing the world. As we have discussed, this alternative model originates with Aristotle, and varies with theorists and their ontologies.
