Description


The Renaissance Extended Mind explores the parallels and contrasts between current philosophical notions of the mind as extended across brain, body and world, and analogous notions in literary, philosophical, and scientific texts circulating between the fifteenth century and early-seventeenth century.

She received a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship for work on this book and was a Research Associate on the Balzan Project, based at St John's College, Oxford University. Dr Anderson combines specialization in Renaissance literary, philosophical and scientific texts, with a broader interest in investigating paradigms of the mind and self across historical and disciplinary boundaries.
