A highly readable introduction to both phenomenology and to its relationship to the embodied cognition approach to understanding the mind this book presents an unique approach. Ginger Campbell MD, Brain Science Podcast This is an extremely well-conceived and well-executed project. By focusing on perception and cognition, the authors both show the contemporary relevance of phenomenology, and provide an excellent introduction to the phenomenological movement in philosophy. I also know of no other introductory text on phenomenology that is so relentlessly clear and jargon free. The authors have done a magnificent job of offering a coherent, sensible, illuminating, and fascinating review of the development of phenomenology and a justification of its enduring importance to philosophy.
