RODRIGUEZ VERGARA, HUGO MAURICIO. Bodily Awareness: A Phenomenological-Cognitive Approach. Ideas y Valores [online]. 2010, vol.59, n.142, pp. 25-47. ISSN 0120-0062.
This essay is an attempt to show the significance of a phenomenological approach towards the cognitive explanations of bodily awareness. Shaun Gallagher, for example, is one of the authors who has tried to develop phenomenological descriptions within cognitive science. This essay is a critical analysis of this embodied cognitive approach. I will use Husserl's genetic phenomenological description. In such description, the body is more than just an intentional object; it becomes the realm of the pre-reflexive and kinesthetic.
