The "Embodied Mind": Contrasting Visions
This paper offers critical commentaries on two arguments in support of the
"embodied" view of mind and cognition as presented in the philosophical
literature of Cognitive Linguistics (eg Johnson, 1987; Lakoff, 1987; Lakoff
and Johnson, 1980, 1999). These commentaries take their inspiration from the
dialectical materialist philosophical perspective which underpinned the
Vygotskian and Activity Theory (or "CHAT", cf Cole, 1996) traditions
(henceforth just "Materialism" for convenience) and especially from the
works of Ilyenkov (eg 1977, 1982, 1997; cf Bakhurst, 1991; Jones, 1994,
1998) in which that perspective receives its "clearest articulation"
(Bakhurst, 1995: 156).
