Welcome! We are two psychologists who are interested in developing a more coherent, naturalised approach to the scientific study of human behaviour.
Interested in getting into the blog? Check out the Rough Guide, which has links to posts sorted by topic.

Sabrina Golonka (email) studies language, similarity and categorisation. Although I'm technically a cognitive psychologist, I reject the representational approach common to most work on cognition. I see dynamical systems / embodied cognition as an alternative to representation, and I want to think about how to study similarity and categorisation from this perspective. My goals on this blog are to wade through arguments for and against representation, to learn more about dynamical systems and embodied cognition, and to think about the state of psychology as a science.

Notes on CommentsWe welcome your comments; keep it friendly so we don't have to moderate anything please, but otherwise we're keen to hear from you! We're happy to answer questions and engage in a discussion on anything here.
A couple of things:
- We never delete comments we don't agree with, but Blogger has been throwing things into the Spam folder for the first time recently; if your comment doesn't show up right away, this is the reason, and one of us will let it out as soon as we see it. If we're slow, tweet or email us.
- You may sometimes see an error when posting a comment that says "414 Request - URI Too Large". This is apparently due to a nominal limit of 4096 characters for a comment, but it actually seems to have no effect - the comment will post normally and if you refresh the page you will see it (you may not if you just use the 'back' button on your browser). You don't need to repost the comment.
- A new bug: sometimes posting a comment simply fails with no error message. So far, this has been because the comment has been too long. Try splitting the comment into two sections. Sorry Blogger has been a bit rubbish with this.
- We've had to enforce spam detection (the word and number verification) because we now get spam. Sorry. If it causes you trouble let us know.
