Book Information

   

Title: Embodiment in Cognition and Culture
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=AiCR%2071
Series Title: Advances in Consciousness Research 71
Description:

This volume shows that the notions of embodied or situated cognition, which
have transformed the scientific study of intelligence have the potential to
reorient cultural studies as well. The essays adapt and amplify embodied
cognition in such different fields as art history, literature, history of
science, religious studies, philosophy, biology, and cognitive science. The
topics include the biological genesis of teleology, the dependence of
meaning in signs upon biological embodiment, the notion of image
schema
and the concept of force in cognitive semantics, pictorial
self-portraiture as a means to study self-perception, the difference
between reading aloud and silent reading as a way to make sense of literary
texts, intermodal (kinesthetic) understanding of art, psychosomatic
medicine, laughter as a medical and ethical phenomenon, the valuation of
laughter and the body in religion, and how embodied cognition revives and
extends earlier attempts to develop a philosophical anthropology. (Series A)
