      "Janus Head. A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies in Continental
      Philosophy, Literature, Phenomenological Psychology and the Arts"

      http://www.janushead.org

      CALL FOR PAPERS

      JANUS HEAD 9.2 (Winter 2006/2007) - Special Issue

      TOPIC: The situated body

      Deadline for submissions: March 1, 2006.

      Guest Editor: Shaun Gallagher (University of Central Florida)

      In recent phenomenological and analytic philosophy, as well as in
      the cognitive sciences, emphasis has been given to embodiment.
      Concepts of embodied, enactive, and situated cognition have been
      developed. This special issue of Janus Head would like to explore
      questions about how the body is situated in both physical and social
      environments. What various ways can we characterize a situated body,
      and how does situatedness affect (or effect) perception, feeling,
      and cognition more generally? We especially encourage
      interdisciplinary approaches to these questions, including
      perspectives informed by phenomenology, philosophy of mind,
      neuroscience, Gibsonian and developmental psychologies, and
      discussions of self, the experience of others, narrative, metaphor,
      architecture, etc.

      We are also soliciting poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and
      visual art that, in some way or other, address the topic of "the
      situated body."

      The latest issue of Janus Head is now available at
      http://www.janushead.org

      This is a very special issue, dedicated to Goethean science, which
      was guested edited by Bill Bywater and Craig Holdrege.

      The issue is also very special because it features one of the last
      interviews by Paul Ricoeur, a dialogue with Sorin Antohi on "Memory,
      History, Forgiveness." Ricoeur, who was one of the 20th century's
      most
      important philosophers, passed away this May 2005. Our special issue
      celebrates the gift of his life to us.

      Here is a list of the contents of the new issue:
