This chapter begins with a discussion of niche construction, which is defined as the activities, choices, and metabolic processes of organisms, through which they define, choose, modify, and partly create their own niches. The discussion then turns to human cognitive niche construction. Debates concerning ‘the extended mind’ and the BRAINBOUND vs EXTENDED models of the mind are considered.

Keywords:   mind, niche construction, BRAINBOUND, EXTENDED, activities, choices, metabolic processes
