Talk at the 4E Cognition Group Seminar – March 14, 2-5 pm
The paper is based on research conducted at the actual radiology department in USA. It is concerned with the “radiologist at work”, i.e. the affective and intersubjective ground for her individual diagnostic intentions and personalised strategies of the enaction of diagnostically relevant experiences via imaging technology. The method of research includes “enactive proofs”— observations and analysis of the externalization of a radiologist’s professional memory through the interaction with medical imaging technology and other practitioners in the field. The findings of this research have much to offer to both philosophy and radiological praxis. While the observations strongly support the development of enactive phenomenology, critique of representationalism, primacy of inference in cognition, and shared intentions, they also provide insight into concrete operations in coping with radiology’s paraphernalia, habituality, the origin of mistakes, multilayered communication, and improving professional praxis. Finally, through the prism of phenomenological ethnography, we can raise anew some philosophically and socially crucial questions, such as “How does something new enter into experience and/or praxis?”

This conference aims at exploring and discussing the intertwinement of temporality, embodiment and intersubjectivity from phenomenological and psychopathological approaches.
Explorations of the phenomenology of time have most often been accomplished from the first-person perspective of consciousness (Husserl) or existential philosophy (Heidegger). There exists, however, significant work on bodily subjectivity, intercorporeality and their temporal dimension as, for instance, by Maurice-Merleau-Ponty or Michel Henry. Nevertheless, a fundamental investigation into the constitutive interrelationship of bodily existence, its temporal dynamics and its interpersonal embeddedness is still a desideratum. It is the target of the conference to explore these dimensions by means of phenomenological and psychopathological methods.
The 4th International Colloquium of Cognitive Science will take place this Oct. 4-6 in Mexico City. Several members of our group have been invited to give talks. More information will become available on the colloquium website soon.
Cognitive and movement measures reflect the transition to presence-at-hand

The phenomenological philosopher Martin Heidegger’s proposed transition from readiness-to-hand to presence-at-hand and the hypothesis of extended cognition were addressed empirically in an experiment on tool use. It involved a video game of steering erratically moving objects to a target while performing a secondary cognitive task. A strong perturbation of the hand-pointer linkage in the video game induced the transition from ready-to-hand to present-at-hand. In Experiment 1, this perturbation resulted in decreased motor performance and improved recall of task-irrelevant features. Experiment 2 replicated these results and addressed additional questions. Measures of movement variability based on the multifractal formalism confirmed the hypothesized decrease in functional integration of the tool during the perturbation. Dynamical interactions allow user and tool to act as a system. The tool is properly described as ready-to-hand during normal operation but as present-at-hand during perturbation. Physiological measures showed that the ready-to-hand to present-at-hand transition does not necessarily lead to a stress response.
I just received an announcement of this new website from Claire Petitmengin. The content should be of interest to members of this group, especially those working with human participants.
In particular, note that there is information on training and workshops, which could be quite useful indeed.
