Reviews

"This impressive group of philosophers have come together across the continental/analytic divide to reconceptualize the body in relation to philosophy. When we view the body as the subject of perception and not just the object, as Gail Weiss points out, it becomes essential to reconceptualize many of the fundamental concepts used in philosophies of action, of mind, and of consciousness. We will need to reconceptualize the cognitive sciences, given that perception is structured by the body as a whole rather than an abstracted perceptual organ. These essays provide an excellent entree into this exciting new area of philosophical discussion
." -- Linda Alcoff
