Embodiment and Education
This book brings together some of the most important philosophical works on the body. These are then subjected to a critical analysis of what bodies 'do' and 'have done to them' in contemporary social life and particularly in education. The author acknowledges the importance of discursive bodies while focusing attention on the active, experiencing body and its anchoring in the 'creatural'. Thinking in these terms, the author argues, can better situate human beings in their environment, thus emphasizing a kind of 'ecological notion of subjectivity', in which place-based existence is understood anew.
