Using Cartesian Dualism as a Framework in understanding Embodied Cognition
This is aimed to be a five-chapered graduate dissertation of not more than 60 pages in all.
The entire work will be produced chapter-by-chapter.
The (same) writer will proceed to the latter chapters depending on his performace on the former.
This research is oriented towards a profound understanding of embodied cognition using the cartesian dualism as the optimal springboard.
The understanding would comprise the essence and action of embodied cognition.
Moreover, it is the objective of this work to contribute to the ongoing interdisciplinary discussion on this subject, thereby supporting the broadening and expansion of its scope, and creating insight for future interdisciplinary research.
In the suitable chapter, in addition to exploring related concepts, we will explore the most current research in the field of cognitive science concerning embodied cognition.
We will discuss how embodied cognition may be a possible way to solve the mind-body problem.
This would indicate to the reader why this would be interesting to them if they are taken with Descartes’ problem.
In the introductory chapter, a general introduction may be attempted.
Attention will as well be drawn to the statement of the problem, aims and objectives of the study, significance and scope, and explication of key concepts.
Another thing that you might do in an introductory chapter is lay out different positions that are taken among those who are considered advocates of embodied cognition.
Again, please show in this introductory chapter what you’ll be doing in the other or rest of the chapters.
That is, what chapter two is and what will be done in it. Same goes for chapter three, four and five.
Determine what the chapters in a standard graduate philosophy dissertation should include.
