10 Mar context

Rounded body of all thingsThe situation/environment in which cognitive (and all other) activities occur. Place, time, and all sensory inputs (i.e. anything we can perceive in our surroundings) constitute the components of context. We filter out unnecessary details and focus on meaningful details such as who and what major objects are present.

  • from Latin contextus: an assembling or putting together,
  • from contexere: to interweave more than one thing,
  • from com-: together + texere: to weave or braid
