Outstanding Research, Groundbreaking Philosophy--6 stars! May 20 2005
By John Russon - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a fabulous book, which should be read by anyone interested in phenomenology, in cognitive science, or in perceptual psychology, and probably by anyone seriously interested in philosophy. In stylish, exhilirating prose, Morris takes us deep into the rich connection of the moving body and the earth, and he develops a philosophically rigorous conception of the body that is responsive to the dynamic and perceptive character of our bodies. Morris's philosophical orientation is primarily drawn from Merleau-Ponty's phenomenological philosophy, but he relies on resources as varied as psychological accounts of infant development, the poetry of Pablo Neruda, the weightlessness-experiments of Lackner and various engaging personal anecdotes. Overall, Morris's account challenges the sterility of many traditional scientific accounts of the body and spatial perception, and replaces them with a phenomenologically rich account that is perhaps most impressive for its demonstration of the centality of emotional and ethical values at the very heart of our bodily engagement with space. This book fits well with the works of cognitive science by such figures as Francisco Varela, Shaun Gallagher, Evan Thompson, Maxine Sheets-Johnstone, Mark Johnson and George Lakoff, and also with contemporary work in Continental Philosophy by such figures as Ed Casey, David Wood, John Llewellyn, Len Lawlor and Renaud Barbaras. Very highly recommended!
