By Sungwon Hwang, Wolff-Michael Roth

This e-book is set the sensuous, dwelling physique with out which person figuring out and studying is most unlikely. it's the interface among the person and tradition. fresh scholarship has moved from investigated understanding and studying as anything within the brain or mind to realizing those phenomena by way of the physique (embodiment literature) or tradition (social constructivism). those literatures have improved the certainty of cognition to incorporate the position of the physique in shaping the brain and to acknowledge the tight relation among brain and tradition. although, there are lots of difficulties bobbing up from ways that the physique and tradition are suggestion in those separate examine domain names. during this booklet, the authors current an interdisciplinary, clinical initiative that brings jointly the troubles for physique and for tradition to increase a unmarried conception of cognition based at the dwelling and lived physique. This publication thereby contributes to bridging the distance that presently exists among concept (knowing that) and praxis (knowing how) that's obvious within the latest technological know-how and arithmetic schooling literatures.

Criture) has been proposed as a metaphor (Derrida, 1967), for in writing, as the pen moves across the page, both space and time are produced, and, with it, words and ideas unfold and develop. The child in a geometry classroom participates in talking about threedimensional objects and temporally develops its understanding of concepts. In a way very similar to writing, the moving body expresses by creating space and time of communication. The act of speaking or listening to others’ talk unfolds in time as much as it is making time.

The purpose of this chapter is to bring together Vygotsky’s cultural-historical perspective on thinking and speaking with MerleauPonty’s analysis of the role of the body in communication. The living body solves the learning paradox because the corporeal engagement in/with the world not only transforms the world (objects) but also brings about changes in the living body, which is structured in/through the experience. The living body that senses and is affected by the world constitutes the integral aspect of learning in which the invisible/unknown becomes visible/known to the person.
