CANDIOTTO, Kleber Bez Birolo  e  KARASINSKI, Murilo. Externalismo ativo e convergência tecnológica NBIC: o advento da hipercognição. Nat. hum. [online]. 2020, vol.22, n.1, pp. 71-94. ISSN 1517-2430.

This article aims to support hypercognition, the result of the interaction of human cognition with interactive artifacts from Convergence Technology NBIC (nano-bio-info-cogno), as a feasible perspective in the face of post-humanist theses that outline an ontological transformation of the human being from the fusion with machines. The feasibility of hypercognition is based on the conception of cognition supported by active externalism, especially that of Andy Clark, for which the environment has relevant enough characteristics to play a leading role in the cognition process, since humans would already be, by nature, experts in the task of incorporating non-biological material into their physical and cognitive routines. The symbiosis between humans (genuine technological cyborgs) and machines would be something that would happen naturally, especially in the sense that cognitive processes would be dependent on external aids. In the context of the NBIC Technological Convergence, this symbiosis is what enables hypercognition.

Palavras-chave : Active externalism; Technological Convergence; Hypercognition.
