Indeed a Heideggerian cognitive science might even make a contribution to explaining why such a description of reality probably cannot be given. We’ve seen above how all 4EA cognitive scientists agree that Dasein is always in the world, and never finds itself without world. Ratcliffe has argued that no present-at-hand understanding of Dasein can grasp what it means to be in the world; 4EA cognitive science would say this is indeed likely to be the case if we start from an understanding of human beings as existing without a world.
By reason of this with-like being-in-the-world, the world is always the one that I share with others. The world of Dasein is a with-world. ” (Heidegger 1962: 118) Talero explains how inscribed into this relation with others is the potential for what she calls “discursive expressivity” the bringing forth (“co-enactment”) of a shared meaning in our interaction with others. The phenomena of discursive expressivity she wishes to point to might naturally be thought of in terms of communication insofar as it involves a sharing of meaning between two or more individuals.
The intra-context frame problem is the problem an agent faces of working out what, from his body of knowledge, is relevant to a context of activity. It contrasts with the intercontext frame problem, the problem of bringing a body of knowledge to bear in moving between contexts of activity. The problem is to produce actions that are appropriate and flexibly adapted not just to the context one is currently operating in, but to a potentially open-ended number of different contexts. It is only if our actions can be made to fit with an open-ended and indeterminate number of different contexts of activity that an agent will be able to move smoothly from one context to the next, behaving in ways appropriate to each when the world changes or new information comes to light.
