Monday, 11 July 2016: 10:45-12:15
Location: Hörsaal 22 (Juridicum)
RC54 The Body in the Social Sciences (host committee)

Language: English

The sociology of the body has elucidated the emergence of human society and culture through a valuable source such as natural history based on direct observation of the behavior of animals including human beings, primates and companion species. 
This session examines the standpoint of corporealism, revealing common features of human behavior through the method of a micro-description of face-to-face interaction and communication. Here, corporealism means the theory that the living and moving body exists in the world with the ultimate certainty and the world is recognized only inside the sensory devise as the body. The purpose of the session is not rigorous philosophical argumentation of these propositions, but a presentation of empirical data as the raw material which could be useful for future elaboration of the theory of corporealism.
