Vitruvian Man by Leonardo — from an earlier historical phase of rethinking in encounter with embodiment

Embodiment means Rethinking too

  • That the meaning of language comes directly from a relationship between propositions (claims) and reality, rather than from your body
  • That we can ‘know’ things by matching propositions in language with reality
  • That if we have a profound or insightful experience in our body, this must tell us something we can put into language about ‘reality’
