The present paper examines the contemporary interest in the relationship between embodiment and consciousness. Inspired by recent findings in language processing, linguistics, cognitive psy- chology, robotics, and neuroscience, researchers have developed embodied approaches to consciousness that tend to focus on either the causality or the phenomenology of cognitive systems. Further embodied positions focus on living systems as a potential medium for consciousness. In conclusion, this paper places the current embodiment movement in the historical context of the continually shifting emphases on reductionism versus holism, and proposes the embodi- ment movement will have staying power if it finds a way to describe consciousness that renders it constitutive of what we are.
