New article on linguistic embodiment and verbal constraints by Stephen Cowley

CHI member Stephen Cowley has published the article “Linguistic embodiment and verbal constraints: human cognition and the scales of time” in Frontiers in Psychology.

Using radical embodied cognitive science, the paper offers the hypothesis that language is symbiotic: its agent-environment dynamics arise as linguistic embodiment is managed under verbal constraints. As a result, co-action grants human agents the ability to use a unique form of phenomenal experience. In defense of the hypothesis, the article stress how linguistic embodiment enacts thinking.
