Beginning with the view that human consciousness is essentially embodied and that the way we consciously experience the world is structured by our bodily dynamics and surroundings, the book argues that emotions are a fundamental manifestation of our embodiment, and play a crucial role in self-consciousness, moral evaluation, and social cognition.
MICHELLE MAIESE Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Emmanuel College, Boston USA. Her research in philosophy of mind and psychology focuses on action, emotion, and the nature of psychological disorder. Her first book, co-authored with Robert Hanna, is entitled Embodied Minds in Action.
