Connectomics #2: Dr. Fred Cummins on embodiment as a frame for the sciences
In episode #2 of the Connectomics podcast, our unit’s staff philosopher Mark James speaks with Dr. Fred Cummin, head of the Cognitive Science program at University College Dublin.
Fred is a linguist and the originator of the field of study that is joint speech: where two or more people say the same thing at the same time, such as within religious rituals, at sporting events, or at political protests. Fred is also an incredibly well studied individual in a range of disciplines and has a profoundly philosophical, idiosyncratic and insightful take on embodiment as a frame within the sciences.
