Abstract

Shaun Gallagher, the Lillian and Morrie Moss Professor of Excellence in Philosophy at the University of Memphis, discusses the notion of embodied affect, a conception of low-level affects that engage the world intentionally and modulate perception, action, and cognition more generally. Gallagher explains how this bodily affect results in a kind of perceptual interest that significantly contributes to our perceptual contact with the world.
