Our fifth colloquium “Embodiment” took place on 25th October 2014. It was a closer look on different versions of embodiment, situated cognition and related concepts with a focus on the Extended Mind Hypothesis.

Many approaches concerning the embodiment issues are motivated by a felt lack of explanatory force in dualistic theories, which have had a revival in the last couple of years. (Of course revival is time-place-relation dependent).

The expert-roles for embodiment theories were kindly taken by Anna Strasser and Joerg Fingerhut, both highly trained and academically experienced philosophers of mind-body-systems.
