Mind and motion a review of Alain Berthoz's 'the brain's sense of movement'
Abstract:It is hard for most people to appreciate how little they know of themselves in regards to basic aspects of living, or how these simple and apparently uninteresting aspects of ourselves can have an influence on the higher aspects of human life and culture. As Alain Berthoz, in his groundbreaking book, The Brain's Sense of Movement, points out, 'Plato forgot the body.' It is a huge omission that continues into today and affects thinking in all our attempts to understand such aspects of ourselves as perception, cognition, emotion, and that major topic of this journal, consciousness.
