This proposal relies on a novel definition for the mechanism of Embodied Simulation (Cuccio 2015a, 2015b) on the basis of which we will claim that Embodied Simulation and gestures are not two different dimensions of embodiment. They are the two extremes of a continuum process and Embodied Simulation is its core mechanism. We will suggest that, in this view, empirical and theoretical works on Embodied Simulation and gestures, mainly considered as two separate lines of research, should be considered from an integrated and unitary perspective.

Abstract

This proposal relies on a novel definition for the mechanism of Embodied Simulation (Cuccio 2015a, 2015b) on the basis of which we will claim that Embodied Simulation and gestures are not two different dimensions of embodiment. They are the two extremes of a continuum process and Embodied Simulation is its core mechanism. We will suggest that, in this view, empirical and theoretical works on Embodied Simulation and gestures, mainly considered as two separate lines of research, should be considered from an integrated and unitary perspective.
