Abstract [en]

Cognitive ecology is a term that has been used in environments that are more tightly coupled and purpose specific than environments of everyday life. In this paper I consider cases from a cognitive ethnography of older adults.These cases show the analytical use of understanding the diachronic and synchronic cognitive ecology in which cognitive processes of everyday life occur. Specifically I discuss how the social and physical ecology and changes in these can shape goals, the use of cognitive artifacts and theuse of other cognitive resources in agent environments that are not as purpose created and not as tightly coupled as environments of previous studies in this field.
