Panel: Embodied Ways of Knowing

Intermediate understanding

Likely soothing
How do you recognise your friend in the street? How do I know how to ride a bike? How come some people have savoir-faire and others are clueless? How does intuition work? The short answer is embodied knowledge. Even though you’ve probably never heard of it, embodied knowledge underpins something like 95% of your thinking (Lakoff and Johnson, 1999). This Panel brings together Dr. K F Austen FRSA, Prof. Shogo Tanaka, Prof. Hui Wilcox and Dr. Adrian Harris to explore this fascinating topic.
