"This volume shows that the notions of embodied or situated cognition, which have transformed the scientific study of intelligence have the potential to reorient cultural studies as well. The essays adapt and amplify embodied cognition in such different fields as art history, literature, history of science, religious studies, philosophy, biology, and cognitive science."--Jacket

Zur Metaphysik der symbolischen Formen by Ernst Cassirer( Book )

At his death in 1945, the influential German philosopher Ernst Cassirer left manuscripts for the fourth and final volume of his magnum opus, The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms. John Michael Krois and Donald Phillip Verene have edited these writings and translated them into English for the first time, bringing to completion Cassirer's major treatment of the concept of symbolic form. Ernst Cassirer believed that all the forms of representation that human beings use-language, myth, art, religion, history, science-are symbolic, and the concept of symbolic forms was the basis of his thinking on these subjects. In this volume, which contains one text written in 1928 and another in about 1940, Cassirer presents the metaphysics that is implicit in his epistemology and phenomenology of culture. The earlier text grounds the philosopher's conception of symbolic forms on a notion of human nature that makes a general distinction between Geist (mind) and life. In the later text, he discusses Basis Phenomena, an original concept not mentioned in any of his previous works, and he compares his own viewpoint with those of other modern philosophers, notably Bergson and Heidegger. -- from http://yalepress.yale.edu (August 22, 2011)

Sehen und Handeln by Horst Bredekamp( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sehen wird traditionell als passiver Prozess aufgefasst, der im Gehirn innere Bil-der entstehen lässt, welche die Wirklichkeit repräsentieren. Handlungen wer-den hingegen in der Regel als aktive Prozesse verstanden, die von Subjekten gesteuert werden. Die Beiträge der Eröffnungstagung der Kolleg-Forschergruppe "Bildakt und Verkörperung" erarbeiten in den Sektionen "Enaktivismus", "Dynamik des Blickens" und "Die Sicht auf die Dinge" alternative Verständnisweisen von Visualität. Sie begreifen Sehen als eine Aktivität, die nicht nur das Gehirn, sondern den gesamten Körper einbezieht, permanent Wirklichkeit gestaltet und somit als Handlung verstanden werden kann. Mit Beiträgen von Alex Arteaga, Horst Bredekamp, Frank Fehrenbach, Shaun Gallagher, Bettina Gockel, Dan Hutto, Sybille Krämer, John Michael Krois, Helmut Pape, Eva Schürmann und Claus Zittel

7 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Zentrum der Aufsätze des international renommierten Cassirerforschers John Michael Krois zu Cassirer, Peirce, Wind und Warburg sowie zu kognitions- und bildwissenschaftlichen Fragestellungen stehen die verkörperungstheoretische Transformation der Philosophie und die Bildkompetenz des Menschen. Sie zielen darauf ab, die dualistische Perspektive der Bewusstseinsphilosophie durch ein komplexes Verhältnis von gegenseitiger Beeinflussung von Bewusstsein und Körper im Prozess des aktiven Navigierens in der Welt und der Schaffung symbolischer Welten zu ersetzen
Verkörperungen by A. L Blum( Book )

Dem Paradigma der verkörperten Kognition zufolge bilden die Bewegungen eines Körpers die Voraussetzung dafür, dass sich intelligentes Verhalten entwickeln kann. Auch Affekte und weitere somatische Dimensionen bestärken die kognitionswissenschaftliche Grundannahme, dass Intelligenz verkörpert ist. Neben diesem Begriff des, embodiment' existieren jedoch zahlreiche andere Bedeutungen von, Verkörperung'. So kann mit diesem Begriff gemeint sein, eine Idee oder Eigenschaft zu personifizieren oder ein Abstraktum zu konkretisieren, wie etwa die Fleischwerdung Gottes, das Spielen einer Rolle oder das T

The philosophy of symbolic forms by Ernst Cassirer( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The symbolic form has long been considered by many who knew it in the original German as the greatest of Ernst Cassirer's works. Into it he poured all the resources of his vast learning about language, myth, religion, art, and science- the various creative symbolizing activities and constructions through which man has expressed himself and given intelligible objective form to his experience
