Author: Matthew Isaac Harvey
Bio Note: Matthew Isaac Harvey’s main interests are the relation between distributed and enactive theories of language and the philosophy of agency and techniques. His PhD is focused on replacing representations (that’s the catchphrase) in linguistic theory, both as a concept and as a suite of terms and associated ways of thinking. With that in mind, he explores the use of agent-based modeling as a research tool in distributed and ecological linguistics, where the aim is to produce emergent phenomena that are recognizably language-like but cannot be traced directly to representational capacities of individual agents.
