I am especially grateful for sights expressed in the last section of the paper, to wit: mbodied AI (EAI) can be understood, not just as a guide for building intelligent ystems, but as providing a set of concepts and approaches which enrich our xplanatory resources, thereby allowing us to better understand the systems we already uild, and , as EAI holds, intelligence really is embodied, situated, and interactive in nature, then erhaps we need to take seriously the notion that understanding and evaluating these ystems (and further developing the conceptual resources which will be necessary for cientific advances in this area) is likewise going to be a matter of actually interacting ith them. e first seems to me just right, while the second is extremely intriguing, and suggests tant implications that ought to be spelled out. Perhaps Chrisley will do this for us in r work; I would certainly welcome such a piece. ll, there are a few places where we appear to disagree; some of these disagreements erely apparent, but one or two are genuine. I will discuss each in turn. presentations and embodiment an example of the first, me
