Preview — Body Consciousness by Richard Shusterman. Contemporary culture increasingly suffers from problems of attention, over-stimulation, and stress, and a variety of personal and social discontents generated by deceptive body images.

This book argues that improved body consciousness can relieve these problems and enhance one's knowledge, performance, and pleasure. The body is our basic medium of perception and action, bu Contemporary culture increasingly suffers from problems of attention, over-stimulation, and stress, and a variety of personal and social discontents generated by deceptive body images.

The body is our basic medium of perception and action, but focused attention to its feelings and movements has long been criticized as a damaging distraction that also ethically corrupts through self-absorption. In Body Consciousness, Richard Shusterman refutes such charges by engaging the most influential twentieth-century somatic philosophers and incorporating insights from both Western and Asian disciplines of body-mind awareness.

The book looks like a big homework. It's so glued to its references you can easily question whether or not it'd be best to just make an article of it.

Whenever reaching obvious flaws worthy of clear condemnations the author sugarcoats his critics so much that it looks like he's writing to a bunch of pampered academic snowflakes on the brink of being triggered. On the same tread, when touching controversial topics the author boldly and triumphantly blurts out the ordinary political correct speech The book looks like a big homework.

Body Consciousness : A Philosophy of Mindfulness and Somaesthetics

Further, work in this area can provide novel insights into personal identity, gender, linguistics, and philosophy of mind. This field is essential for philosophy since the acquisition of knowledge is largely contingent on sensory perception, which is in turn contingent upon the body. Somaesthetics can consequently play an important role in acquiring knowledge since its practices allow individuals to improve somatic functioning and, consequently, to improve perceptual accuracy. More generally, one of the aims of philosophy is self-knowledge, and since the self is necessarily embodied, it is clear that philosophy must concern itself with embodiment. Somaesthetic practices such as the Feldenkrais Method, Alexander Technique, and Bioenergetics can increase body consciousness and can consequently give practitioners insight into the manner in which the body shapes the self. Shusterman made these points in earlier works such as Pragmatist Aesthetics and Performing Live ; however, whereas those earlier texts include essays on topics ranging from somaesthetics, to popular music, multiculturalism, and postmodernism, Body Consciousness focuses primarily on the philosophy of embodiment.
