Abstract : I argue that Clark and Chalmers’ (1998) parity principle and the various criteria they use to define cognition are too conservative. On a more liberal vehicle externalist view we should extend the concept of the extended mind to include engagement with social and cultural institutions. I discuss problem solving using the legal system as an example. I also respond to specific objections that have been raised against the extended mind hypothesis.
