Seems accurate for me as well (your view of Ponty + embodied cognition and mine that is smile emoticon ) – I mean, some of it has found validity in CogSci, such as tools being an extension of the self in brain scans and metaphors are seen by the brain as concrete, but in order for it to stick fully, a lot of things would have to be rewritten and really, those things don’t really have to be rewritten. It’s more of an attitude.
But it’s enough for me to stand behind. It doesn’t do much that’s novel, but it does get rid of the silly brain/body/social/environment lines somewhat. It’s more of a change-of-perspective than omg-woah.
