How the Body Shapes the Mind offers a fascinating examination of the role played by the body in perception and in the development and practice of thinking. Shaun Gallagher uses the concepts of body image and body schema to address a range of philosophical questions about cognition, drawing on recent work in developmental psychology, brain research, and studies of unusual pathologies. Truly interdisciplinary, the book will reward academics and professionals
in philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and beyond.
