This book brings together 11 essays by international specialists in Victorian culture and modernism and provides a general
and period-specific introduction to distributed cognition and the cognitive humanities. The essays revitalise our reading
of Victorian and modernist works in the fields of history of technology, science and medicine, material culture, philosophy,
art and literary studies by bringing to bear recent insights in cognitive science and philosophy of mind on the ways in which
cognition is distributed across brain, body and world.
