Title: Moving Ourselves, Moving Others
Subtitle: Motion and emotion in intersubjectivity, consciousness and language
Edited By: Ad Foolen

Series Title: Consciousness & Emotion Book Series 6
Description:

The close relationship between "motion" (bodily movement) and
"emotion" (feelings) is not an etymological coincidence. While moving
ourselves, we move others; in observing others move – we are moved
ourselves. The fundamentally interpersonal nature of mind and language has
recently received due attention, but the key role of (e)motion in this context
has remained something of a blind spot. The present book rectifies this gap
by gathering contributions from leading philosophers, psychologists and
linguists working in the area. Framed by an introducing prologue and a
summarizing epilogue (written by Colwyn Trevarthen, who brought the
phenomenological notion of "intersubjectivity" to a wider audience some
30 years ago) the volume elaborates a dynamical, active view of emotion,
along with an affect-laden view of motion – and explores their significance for
consciousness, intersubjectivity, and language. As such, it contributes to the
emerging interdisciplinary field of "mind science", transcending hitherto
dominant computationalist and cognitivist approaches.
