See this article. Agreed. Except with this statement: “We can begin to build the framework of a metaphor-free theory of intelligent human behavior." According to embodied cognition no we cannot; we replace it with a better metaphor. It this case, the embodied (enacted, embedded, extended) network metaphor. Hence my article on the collaborative commons and the ‘paradigm shift.’ This latter comment is more in line with that sentiment, the article quoting Radical Embodied Cognitive Science: “Intelligent behavior as a direct interaction between organisms and their world.” That too is a metaphor, just a better one.
