Corporeal Eidetics, Corporeal Hermeneutics and Body Weather

Stuart Grant

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The term embodied knowledge is increasingly used to describe a loose, diverse, and heterogeneous array of phenomena. This essay approaches the question of how it might be possible for a body to "know" and suggests two phenomenological, corporeal methods, interpretive and generalising, which might open an understanding of the complex interactions between corporeality, knowledge, representation, and performance.
