Towards a Deeply Embodied Enactivism

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Enactivism; Performance; Bodily Self-Awareness; Disembodiment; Schizophrenia.

We start by discussing a paper written by Shaun Gallagher in which he assesses the epistemological validity of enactivism by analyzing some researches on human performativity. Our thesis is that such operation, in order to be successful, should be enriched by the contributions coming from phenomenological psychopathology; more specifically, we claim that the alterations in the bodily roots of self that occur in schizophrenia should be taken as a paradigm for studying the role of the body in the interplay between the individual and the environment. Finally, we will account for our conviction that performativity and non-performativity might be the pillars of a new form of enactivism.
