Embodiment theories and alternative perspectives on the body
Embodiment theories have overcome the doctrine of intellectus archetypus without ever discussing the notion of body on which that particular kind of intellect was based. Indeed, the model of the body underlying embodiment theories remains an a priori: anthropomorphic, independent and “self-contained”. This paper sheds light on the problematic points of this vision and explores the anthropology of the “ontological turn”, looking for alternative modes of body knowledge – seeing it as the result of “affects”, “affections” and habitus – more effective in justifying the corporeal dimension of cognition.
