Before Rene Descartes arrived at his famously statement, ‘I think therefore I am,’ he systematically cut himself off from all his embodied senses of sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. This allowed him ‘to be’ without ‘being-in-the-world.’ This course will team philosophical inquiry (thinking and writing) with somatic exercises (developing our bodily knowledge) in order to ask: ‘How can we learn from our bodies’ and, ‘How do we learn with our bodies?’  Enrollment Limit: 14.
Instructor: A. Cooper-Albright
