The Cartesian person, with a mind wholly separate from the body, does not exist. The Kantian person, capable of moral action according to the dictates of a universal reason, does not exist. The phenomenological person, capable of knowing his or her mind entirely through introspection alone, does not exist.
The utilitarian person, the Chomskian person, the poststructuralist person, the computational person, and the person defined by analytic philosopy all do not exist. Then what does?
Lakoff and Johnson show that a philosopy responsible to the science of mind offers radically new and detailed understandings of what a person is. After first describing the philosophical stance that must follow from taking cognitive science seriously, they re-examine the basic concepts of the mind, time, causation, morality, and the self: then they rethink a host of philosophical traditions, from the classical Greeks through Kantian morality through modern analytic philosopy.
They reveal the metaphorical structure underlying each mode of thought and show how the metaphysics of each theory flows from its metaphors.
Finally, they take on two major issues of twentieth-century philosopy: how we conceive rationality, and how we conceive language. Philosopy in the Flesh reveals a radically new understanding of what it means to be human and calls for a thorough rethinking of the Western philosophical tradition. This is philosopy as it has never been seen before.

We're committed to providing low prices every day, on everything. If, methodologically, the phenomenological approach "brackets" the lived experience of the perceiving and sensing human subject, what happens when we consider the "molecular" level of genomics, computer software or drug compounds and would this be a "molecular phenomenology"? Is there an embodiment specific to the realm of bits and atoms?
