Foundational Questions of an Embodied Anthropology

Thomas Fuchs

  • Applies cutting-edge concepts of embodiment and enactivism to the current scientific, technological and cultural tendencies that will crucially influence our society's development in the 21st century
  • Examines central technological developments, such as AI and transhumanist views of the human being
  • Has an interdisciplinary approach, combining phenomenology, psychology, psychiatry, cultural and life sciences, which conveys a broad picture of what it means to be human
