Reviews

"Guy Claxton is an articulate spokesman for the new field of "embodied cognition". He argues that shaking off our brain-centered view will not only give us a better understanding of human biology but will also benefit society."-Clive Cookson, Financial Times
"Eloquently written, refreshing and entertaining."-Elsbeth Stern, Nature
"Memory, consciousness, emotions, abstractions, the nature of the self - our casual conceptions of all these are powerfully challenged as Intelligence in the Flesh examines the unity of mind and body with considerable wisdom and not a little wit."-David Perkins, author of Future Wise: Educating Our Children for a Changing World

"The best book on the topic of embodied intelligence that I know: the most thorough, as well as the most clearly thought out, and the most readable. It deserves to be very widely read and should become a classic work in the area."-Iain McGilchrist, author of The Master and His Emissary
