Productive Strife: Clark’s Cognitive Science and Rhetorical Agonism

Nathaniel Rivers & Jeremy Tirrell. "Productive Strife: Clark’s Cognitive Science and Rhetorical Agonism." Janus Head 11.3 (2010).

This article posits that Andy Clark’s model of distributed cognition (or the extended mind) manifests in the agonism of social activity, and that a rhetorical perspective permits an understanding of human conflict as a productive and necessary element in collective responses to situations rather than as problems to be solved or noise to be eliminated. To support this assertion, the article draws connections between Clark's project and rhetorical theory.
