Abstract

In its initial phases, cognitive-linguistic theories of embodiment conceived of the human body as a solitary, organic entity confined to self-reliant practices of metabolizing nourishment and moving around in its physical environment. By contrast, our theoretical foundation for philosophical and semantic analysis integrates into the concept of a human body a social as well as communicative dimension of existence. As it is, intersubjectivity and expressivity are essential and unavoidable aspects of having a human body, and we are born into a world of conversational participants who are an intricate part of our natural environment. In addition to its physiological configuration and bio-mechanical organization, a body is thus also a body in relation to other bodies and minds.
