Fellow travellers

One of the aims of our letter is to help make visible the sheer variety of work across the cognitive sciences taking an interactive stance and exploring its implications. Here we offer a growing list of like-minded work. The focus is on programmatic papers and books that can point the interested reader to new empirical and theoretical vistas.
