This volume is a remarkable collection of essays for its creative approach to the topic of thinking. The various essays effectively demonstrate the ways in which thinking does not merely take place in the brain but is embodied in our material and practical engagement with the world. -- James Risser, Professor of Philosophy, Seattle University, USA
Here is a book to help us understand the ways we and the world are mutually obliged. A book leading us toward the ecological sensibility that we must learn quickly from the lively world that, for the moment, continues to host us. * Ross Gibson, Centenary Professor of Creative & Cultural Research, University of Canberra, Australia *
Attuned to contemporary technologies that open new ways to engage mind-world relationships, this outstanding collection of critical and innovative phenomenological analyses provides a rich set of exciting interventions that respond in original ways to (both senses of) the question that Heidegger famously formulated: "What is Called Thinking?" / "What Calls for Thinking?" -- Michael J. Shapiro, Professor of Political Science, University of Hawai'i, Manoa
