Asked where does thinking take place, maybe we’d answer “in our heads” –– within the internal reaches of our minds.
But is this the full and true story? Or does it perhaps give too much credit to our mental prowess and powers? And too little acknowledgment of the many sorts of concrete support that our thinking gets from our physical environment and our ability to physically move and tinker with things?
Does thinking depend not just on how we play with ideas, or thoughts, but also on how we interplay with physical objects — concrete tangible things — existing out there in the world?
