Title: Body Memory, Metaphor and Movement

Series Title: Advances in Consciousness Research 84
Description:

"Body Memory, Metaphor and Movement" is an interdisciplinary volume
with contributions from philosophers, cognitive scientists, and movement
therapists. Part one provides the phenomenologically grounded definition of
body memory with its different typologies. Part two follows the aim to integrate
phenomenology, conceptual metaphor theory, and embodiment approaches from
the cognitive sciences for the development of appropriate empirical methods to
address body memory. Part three inquires into the forms and effects of
therapeutic work with body memory, based on the integration of theory,
empirical findings, and clinical applications. It focuses on trauma treatment and
the healing power of movement. The book also contributes to metaphor theory,
application and research, and therefore addresses metaphor researchers and
linguists interested in the embodied grounds of metaphor. Thus, it is of
particular interest for researchers from the cognitive sciences, social sciences,
and humanities as well as clinical practitioners.
