This blog was specifically designed to help consolidate, sort through and compress the many ways in which researching embodiment has changed and enlightened our philosophical understanding of ourselves and the world.
Embodiment or corporeality has become an area of interest for a wide variety of fields, ranging from philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, biology, artificial intelligence and robotics, to art theory and music, feminist thought, linguistics, anthropology, mathematics and education.
Most centrally, an embodied philosophy offers an alternative to the disembodied, classicist, mostly Western anglophone approaches from which we’ve traditionally understood each of these fields.
Despite its broad application, a comprehensive picture of an embodied approach is only beginning to emerge. The hope is that this blog will serve as an estuary on the web; a resource of consilience for research and theory focused on embodiment.
