  • Product Description

The last few years have seen scientific advancements that were thought to be possible only in the realm of science fiction. From nuclear transfer to exogenous pregnancies, implantable brain chips to transgenic engineering, cyborg to chimera, we may be taking the next step in our own evolution. The work is a meta-philosophical account that begins within the different emerging views of corporeality. It is an approach in understanding the shift from investigation of bodies to bodying, from noun form to transitive verb of incorporealization. It makes a rubric reviews of various embodiment studies for considering the definition and scope of the human identity as embodied person from three major different research perspectives in philosophical studies ranging from, the dualistic standpoint of disembodied person, to the true physicalistic view of machine body to the phenomenological aspects of embodied person. This work therefore, provides a metric for those interested in understanding different perspective of embodiment and its implication in social, medical and cultural phenomena.
