The paper will discuss the extended mind thesis with a view to the notions of "agent" and of "mind", while helping to clarify the relation between "embodiment" and the "extended mind". I will suggest that the extended mind thesis constitutes a reductio ad absurdum of the notion of 'mind'; the consequence of the extended mind debate should be to drop the notion of the mind altogether - rather than entering the discussion how extended it is.
