A cultural-historical approach to distributed cognition

Our own rediscovery of the distribute nature of mind has grown from our acquaintance with the cultural-historical school of psychology. Consequently, we have decided to explore approaches to distributed cognition by tracing this line of thinking back to the origins of psychology as a distinct discipline, by relating how it was developed by the cultural-historical school of psychology earlier in this century, and by suggesting the advantage of working within the cultural-historical framework (informed by modern cognitive psychology, anthropology, and sociology) when studying cognition as a distributed phenomenon.
