Do I think there’s more do it than this?

a) Damasio’s illustration of ‘levels of automated homeostatic regulation, from simple to complex’, constituting what Panksepp (2005) called “a multi-tiered affectively embodied view of mind”. Illustration from Ziemke (2008: 406); adapted from Damasio (2003: 32). b) Current notions of embodied cognitive science and their historical roots. Adapted from Chemero (2009: 30).
