Bridging the Body/Mind Divide

First-Year Seminar Program 103

Usual Description

Before Rene Descartes arrived at his famous statement, ‘I think therefore I am,’ he systematically cut himself off from all his embodied senses of sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. This allowed him “to be” without “being-in-the-world.” This course will team philosophical inquiry (thinking and writing) with somatic exercises (developing our bodily knowledge) in order to ask: How can we learn from our bodies? and, How do we learn with our bodies?
