Guy Claxton on Why Your Mind Needs Your Body

source: The RSA     2016年5月12日
Western Culture has long separated the mind from the body; the brain, has been privileged as the source of intellect, with the rest of the body annexed as mere matter. But the new field of ‘embodied cognition’, offers a richer, more holistic view of intelligence that involves the whole body. Author and education reformer Professor Guy Claxton introduces this new field, explores the far-reaching implications of the persistence of the Cartesian mind/body ‘error’, and reveals how an appreciation of the whole body’s intelligence can enrich all our lives.
