Check out the full notes for “The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain” by Annie Murphy Paul
Started a Twitter thread here with some notes:
"The Extended Mind" by @anniemurphypaul
Started reading and drawing some notes.
• Ever evolving brain metaphors:
muscle → switchboard → computer → magpie
• Where does the mind stop and the rest of the world begin?
• Amplifying gut feelings (instead of replacing them) pic.twitter.com/Ug6mW5v2T9

Not sure of the best way to re-post Twitter threads to the blog but I’ll just start simple. I don’t think I’ll post all the tweets in the thread here. They should be notes that could be expanded into individual book notes posts.
In any case, I really enjoyed it. I learned about it through Bookworm (ep 129) a podcast that reviews one non-fiction book each week. They gave it the coveted double 5-star rating, so that got me really interested. Especially because they read (like, really deep read) a lot of non-fiction books.
