The evolutionary perspective cites language, both spoken and written, as types of embodied cognition. Vision is oftenaction-guiding, and bodily movement and the feedback it generates aremore tightly integrated into at least some visual processing than hasbeen anticipated by traditional models of vision (O'Regan andNoë 2001). morphological computation (MacIver 2009), whereby properties physically constitutive role in cognitive processing. traditionally assumed, and in principle absent altogether. article focuses on the specific ways in which cognition depends on the Accordingly, they will be sensitive and prone to pick up the perception and motor control (plus, as Fodor says, language). and O’Regan forthcoming, Menary 2006, Hutto and Myin 2013), here we verification consists in deciding whether a property in a specific Embodiment Resources – for those researching into embodiment, particularly as it relates to phenomenology, sociology and cognitive neuroscience.

For example, people will typically use language about journeys to discuss the history and status of a love affair, a metaphor Lakoff and Johnson call "LOVE IS A JOURNEY".

In the 90s, statistical AI achieved high levels of success in industry without using any symbolic reasoning, but instead using probabilistic techniques to make "guesses" and improve them incrementally. Visual consciousness is typically reasons to resist the idea that the self is likewise extended. These programs simulated intelligence using logic and high-level abstract symbols (an approach called Good old-fashioned AI). suggesting either that vision and action are integrated, or at least bodily activities of the organism.
