Utgivarens beskrivning

Which are the aspects of cognition not yet focused on as such by brain research? How can one deal with them?. This book sheds light on the other sides of cognition, on what they mean for forms and figurations of subjective, cultural and social understanding. In examining nuances, exceptions, changes, emotions and absence of emotions, automatized actions and meaningful relations, states of minds and states of bodies, the volume searches new approaches to these phenomena in discussing the relation between the ‘habitus’ – the habits and behavioral attitudes involved in cognition – and its embeddedness in a ‘habitat’. By opening a dialogue between artistic knowledge and the sciences, ‘Other Sides of Cognition ’investigates ‘novel avenues’ and concepts within science and research. At a Berlin-based conference: Other Sides of Cognition, scholars gathered from various disciplines to discuss these issues. This book broadens perspectives on the interdisciplinary field encompassing perception, action and epistemic formations. It offers a new view on the related field of habitus and cognition.
