Author’s Abstract

  1. In this chapter I will discuss a number of empirical approaches to conscious visual experience which fall under the general framework of embodied cognition.
  2. I will organize the chapter by treating the following topics in order:
    → embedded and situated vision,
    → extended vision,
    → enactive vision,
    → dynamical systems approaches to vision, and
    → the embodied neuroscience of vision.
  3. In the first five sections of the chapter, I will present each approach along with some common objections.
  4. In the final section of the chapter, I will indicate questions for future investigation. As one might expect, there will be some overlap between the different approaches.
