On this episode, Annie Murphy Paul and I chat about her fantastic new book, The Extended Mind. Topics covered include:

  • The “brainbound” way of thinking—and why it’s broken;
  • How our body can be more rational than our brain;
  • How to practice “interoception”;
  • How physical activity, of varying intensities, can support thought;
  • The power of nature in supporting thought;
  • How to externalize information to think more clearly;
  • How open offices affect how we think;
  • The importance of people and thought.
