The body has traditionally been treated as a biological object in psychology. However, is there more to our bodies than that? Some psychologists recognize that we relate to other people and the world about us through our bodies. This course, The body: A phenomenological psychological perspective, explores the theoretical perspective on embodiment: the phenomenological psychological perspective.
