Abstract:

The first volume of the two-volume set "Body, Language and Mind" focuses on
the concept of embodiment, understood in most general terms as "the bodily
basis of phenomena such as meaning, mind, cognition and language". The
volume offers a representative, multi- and interdisciplinary
state-of-the-art collection of papers on embodiment and brings together a
large variety of different perspectives, from cognitive linguistics,
cognitive science, philosophy, psychology, semiotics and artificial
intelligence.

Being envisioned as a reader of sorts in theoretical and empirical research
on embodiment, the book revolves around several core issues that have been
addressed previously, to a large degree independently, in various
disciplines. In particular the volume illustrates the diversity of notions
of embodiment that has arisen in various disciplines over the last twenty
years, and addresses the question how these different interpretations
relate to each other, i.e. are they different aspects of or different
perspectives on the same phenomena, or do they actually contradict each
other? For this purpose, several aspects of cognition and language, such
as phenomenal experience, perception, action, conceptualization,
communication, meaning creation, social interaction and culture, are
illuminated from the perspective of different theories of embodiment.

The contributions are integrated through cross-connections between
individual authors' papers and through an introductory essay that
identifies the different strands of research, the central issues that they
share, and the synergies that can be gained from addressing embodiment from
an interdisciplinary perspective.
