The theory of extended mind developed by Chalmers and Clark assumes that the boundaries of the mind donot coincide with the boundaries of the human brain.

One of the most important questionswhich arises from such theory is the following: what are the real boundaries of the extended mind?

Abstract

The theory of extended mind developed by Chalmers and Clark assumes that the boundaries of the mind donot coincide with the boundaries of the human brain. In this sense external supports can be considered as key components of our mental activities. One of the most important questionswhich arises from such theory is the following: what are the real boundaries of the extended mind? In this essay we try to answer this question regarding the aesthetic experience. In particular, we claim that a perceptual event turns into an aesthetic event due to the role of the external language,which extends an aesthetic event in an artificial implant.
