In the 17th century, Descartes and Spinoza each provided interesting and influential approaches to answering the question: what is the relationship between a mind and its body.

Descartes is in large part responsible for undermining the role of the soul in answering this question, formulating the “mind-body problem” in the form that philosophers still grapple with today.

A certain reading of Descartes, which we refer to as ‘the embodied Descartes’, is emerging from recent scholarship on L’Homme.

"Descartes' Error" is a "straw man", since the idea of a disembodied "soul" is, to say the least, not taken seriously in modern scientific circles. What is missing from this book is the realization that the "self", the source of free will and the decisions we make is not to be found exclusively in our heads/5().

I was working on a research project on René Descartes’s (–) radically new embodied psychology when Damasio’s () book Descartes’ Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain was published.

Curious about how a leading researcher evaluated Descartes’s contributions, I immediately ordered the : Geir Kirkebøen.

Descartes imagined that pure rational thought had its own dynamic, divorced from the body; once decisions had been made, thought somehow reached out of the mind to grab the body's controls and make things happen.

Embodied cognition has a relatively short history. Their book extensively examined how, when and why we use metaphors. After reading. The remainder of the book is a study of some of the concepts by which Descartes describes key features of human experience in which the unity of human nature, or the embodiment of the mind, is especially apparent.

These include human consciousness, the intentionality of thought, sensory perception, the passions, and free will. Paul Hoffman's collection Essays on Descartes comes in a plain, not-quite-brown wrapper that camouflages the trailblazing work within. Hoffman is among the very first of recent Anglophone commentators to examine Descartes's anthropology (by which I mean his account of the full, embodied human being, not his fieldwork among exotic peoples).

On Descartes’ Passive Thought is the culmination of a life-long reflection on the philosophy of Descartes by one of the most important living French philosophers. In it, Jean-Luc Marion examines anew some of the questions left unresolved in his previous books about Descartes, with a particular focus on Descartes’s theory of morals and the passions.

Descartes has long been associated with. Descartes is the real rigorous physicist here - he was after all one of the people who devised physics. What he meant by the soul and God being 'spirit' is that they caused matter to move.

Matter for Descartes was just the inert occupancy of a space (extension). So /5(23). Yes, Descartes does claim to be an intellect (thinking thing).

But he also realizes he is an embodied creature with some properties attributable to the mind/body union and not to mind or body alone. Descartes’ dualism is substance dualism. This view has few adherents these days (the interaction problem is still the killer). In what follows I hope to first unmask our Cartesian assumptions and to rework our self understanding as embodied, loving beings so that we can see that embodied practices like Lent are so significant.
