Notes on Embodiment in Homer: Reading Homer on moods and action in the light of Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty

Abstract
Homer has a unique understanding of the body. On his view the body is that by means of which we are subject to moods, and moods are what attune us to our situation. Being attuned to a situation, in turn, opens us to the various ways things and people can be engaging. We agree with Homer that this receptivity is evident throughout our entire existence. It characterizes everything from our basic bodily skills for coping with objects and people to our tendency to be immersed in and guided by moods such as the erotic or the agonistic – whole ways for a situation to matter.
