Body and Mind—A Historical Perspective

  • Jessica LindblomEmail author
Part of the Cognitive Systems Monographs book series (COSMOS, volume 26)


This chapter provides an overview of the history of the conceptions of the relation between mind and body. It begins with the ideas of Plato and Descartes, continuing via Darwin’s work to behaviorism, various (alternative) approaches of agent-environment interaction to the rise of the cognitive revolution in the mid-1950s. The inception of cognitive science resulted in computationalism and the main characteristics of the traditional approach and the criticism thereof are addressed. The final section of the chapter summarizes the main ideas concerning the relation between mind and body from the Ancient Greeks to computationalism.
