Abstract

Stephanie Schierhuber studied sleep in early modern literature and drama. She found that sleepers use cognitive extension to outsource their attentional capacity during sleep in order to mitigate vulnerability. Her research provides a means for literary scholars to interpret sleep and contributes to the development of extended mind theory.
