An explicitly phenomenological perspective of embodied cognition, according to ChatGPT4, can help in precisely the areas of interest of mine, confirming further that I seem to be strongly phenomenological
“However, the explicit integration of phenomenological perspectives could potentially enhance the understanding of embodied cognition. Here are a few ways this could be done:”
1. Incorporating First-Person Perspectives: Phenomenology emphasizes the importance of first-person experiences. Incorporating these perspectives into studies of cognition can provide valuable insights into how individuals perceive and interact with their environment.
2. Exploring the Lived Body: Phenomenology distinguishes between the “lived body” (the body as we subjectively experience it) and the “objective body” (the body as an object that can be studied scientifically). This distinction can be useful in studying embodied cognition, as it highlights the importance of subjective bodily experiences in shaping cognitive processes.
3. Understanding Temporality: Phenomenology also emphasizes the importance of temporality – the experience of time. This could be a valuable addition to the study of embodied cognition, as our cognitive processes are not only influenced by our current bodily state but also by our memories of past bodily experiences and our anticipations of future ones.
4. Inter-subjectivity: Phenomenology also highlights the role of inter-subjectivity, the mutual and reciprocal interaction between individuals, in shaping our experiences and perceptions. This could be particularly relevant in understanding social aspects of cognition.
