Shaun Gallagher: 'Situating embodied cognition in learning environments'
In this presentation I'll review different concepts of situated and embodied cognition andexplain some of the antecedent philosophical work related to these concepts. I'll focus on sources in the phenomenological and pragmatist traditions, especially Merleau‐Ponty and Dewey, and indicate how their work informs contemporary approaches to embodied cognition. I'll also indicate how general conceptions of embodied cognition and the role of environmentally attuned movement inform learning contexts, and I'll relate this to danceand music education.
