Translated title of the contribution: Embodied Language from and for Embodied Cognition

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Embodied language from and for embodied cognition grounds the origin of language in the evolution of the human species and in the contours of man's present brain structure. In the brain there is continuity: the sensory areas receive stimuli, to which the species-specific voice is put, and conceptual language is produced; on this basis terms are abstracted and high levels of abstraction are reached. Thus it is given reason that the linguistic dimension is the faculty that articulates the substance of the human phonetic faculty, with the elements of the environment. Therefore, the linguistic explanations of both internalism and externalism, which absolutize either the faculty or the periphery respectively, are rejected.
