|Summary:||This classic work, first published in 1991, was one of the first to propose the 'embodied cognition' approach in cognitive science. It pioneered the connections between phenomenology and science and between Buddhist practices and science. This revised edition includes introductions that clarify central arguments of the work and discuss and evaluate subsequent research that has expanded on the themes of the text, including the renewed theoretical and practical interest in Buddhism and mindfulness.|
