Jean-Paul Orgeron reviews “Mind the Body”

Dr. Jean-Paul Orgeron (Milne Library) has published a review of Frederique de Vignemont’s Mind the Body: An Exploration of Bodily Self-Awareness (Oxford University Press, 2018) in the March 2019 issue of Choice (v. 56 n. 7). De Vignemont’s book is a valuable contribution to the interdisciplinary field of cognitive science and offers an uncompromising, novel stance on bodily awareness that originates not in the actions a body performs but, rather, in the mind’s representation of it. Currently the deputy director of the Jean Nicod Institute in Paris and a recipient of the 2015 Young Mind & Brain Prize, de Vignemont is also an executive editor of the Review of Philosophy and Psychology.
