Reason for embargo
Classic and more recent phenomenological works provide rich accounts of our experience of the body and of its relation to the world. In this chapter I pull out one thread from this literature, focusing on the phenomenon of incorporation: literally, the capacity of the body to take something else into itself. As we will see, to date this phenomenon has been discussed primarily, if not exclusively, in relation to our sensorimotor capacities. The aim of this chapter is to show that not just the sensorimotor body (the perceiving and moving body) but the affective body too is subject to the process of incorporation.
