I generally work on the relevance of psychologist L.S. Vygotsky for contemporary accounts of "distributed cognition," and what that might mean for questions concerning human cognitive origins. My research lately deals with the work of comparative psychologist Michael Tomasello and his "Vygotskian Intelligence Hypothesis." I'm also interested in the philosophy of technology, especially as it intersects with certain transhumanist programs.
