Thank you Brett – as a Wittgenstein inspired psychologist I am very aware of the mereological fallacy. Neural patterns are called ‘neural signatures’ by the enactivists (a movement which is sweeping the planet in cognitive science, as we get to understand what Wittgenstein was on about), as neural signatures are but a small part of the “mind” (or mental circuit) which includes the larger brain-body-world dynamic (which is the whole). (See Gallagher – 2017 ‘Enactivist interventions). Enactivists Hutto & Kirchhoff (2015) have been quick to point out that there are few neural networks (signatures) in play throughout development – at different ages different signatures – especially for social functioning. Wittgenstein once said with regards this debate: “The best prophylactic against this is the thought that I don’t know at all whether the humans I am acquainted with actually have a nervous system”.
