The body in action: mediate, understand, learn.

Daniela Maggi


The body is a mediator of knowledge and plays this role through movement and all its senses. The individual discovers in the body the possibility of acting, of knowing and of encountering himself and the other. The body is the essential place of man's existence. The body can be a teaching mediator and learning mediator, in other words it becomes an effective didactic mediator. The role of the body is analyzed, passing from embodied cognition to enation theory to conclude by arguing about the body's flow also in learning processes.
