Summary

Embodied cognition often challenges standard cognitive science. In this outstanding introduction Lawrence Shapiro sets out the central themes and debates surrounding embodied cognition, explaining and assessing the work of many of the key figures in the field, including Jerry Fodor, Hilary Putnam, Andy Clark and John Haugeland.Beginning with an outline of the theoretical and methodological commitments of standard cognitive science, Shapiro then examines philosophical arguments surrounding the traditional perspective. He introduces topics such as dynamic systems theory, vision, attention, memory, and language, before addressing core issues in philosophy of mind such as personal identity and reductionism.Including helpful chapter summaries and annotated further reading at the end of each chapter, Embodied Cognition is essential reading for all students of philosophy of mind and psychology, and cognitive science.
