[first paragraph] In contemporary philosophy of mind, internalism – the view that mental phe- nomena are confined to the brain, or at least the body of subjects – is a widely held position. In their (in)famous paper “The Extended Mind”, Andy Clark and David Chalmers (1998) have challenged inte rnalism about the mind, proposing instead the Extended Mind thesis. According to that view, someone's beliefs or memories can be “constituted partly by fea- tures of the environment” (Clark and Chalmers 1998, 12). In other words, Clark and Chalmers hold that parts of the environment can be part of the mental. This position is also known under the name of “active externalism” (to distinguish it from the passive externalism with respect to content as developed by Putnam and Burge) (Clark & Chalmers 1998, p. 12).
