  1. Embodiment and Personal Identity in Dementia.Thomas Fuchs - 2020 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 23 (4):665-676.
    Theories of personal identity in the tradition of John Locke and Derek Parfit emphasize the importance of psychological continuity and the abilities to think, to remember and to make rational choices as a basic criterion for personhood. As a consequence, persons with severe dementia are threatened to lose the status of persons. Such concepts, however, are situated within a dualistic framework, in which the body is regarded as a mere vehicle of the person, or a carrier of the brain as (...)

  • The Extended Body: A Case Study in the Neurophenomenology of Social Interaction. [REVIEW]Tom Froese & Thomas Fuchs - 2012 - Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences 11 (2):205-235.
    There is a growing realization in cognitive science that a theory of embodied intersubjectivity is needed to better account for social cognition. We highlight some challenges that must be addressed by attempts to interpret ‘simulation theory’ in terms of embodiment, and argue for an alternative approach that integrates phenomenology and dynamical systems theory in a mutually informing manner. Instead of ‘simulation’ we put forward the concept of the ‘extended body’, an enactive and phenomenological notion that emphasizes the socially mediated nature (...)

  • Die Erinnerung des Leibes. Zur Relevanz und Funktion von Leibzeit bei Alzheimer-Demenz.Julia Meer - 2018 - Zeitschrift Für Praktische Philosophie 5 (1):207-230.
    Der Beitrag bemüht sich um eine Neubewertung des als Hauptsymptom von Alzheimer-Demenz geltenden Gedächtnisverlustes. Dabei wird auf die in der phänomenologischen Forschung in unterschiedlichen begrifflichen Varianten thematisierte Unterscheidung zwischen explizitem und implizitem Gedächtnis rekurriert und gezeigt, dass im Verlauf von Alzheimer-Demenz das implizite Gedächtnis teilweise länger erhalten bleibt bzw. immer deutlicher hervortritt. Um dies zu belegen, wird in zwei Schritten argumentiert: Im ersten Teil des Papers werden drei Strukturmerkmale der leiblichen Zeit, die dem impliziten Gedächtnis zugrunde liegt, vorgeschlagen: das Absinken (...)

  • Phantom Sensations: A Neurophenomenological Exploration of Body Memory.Thiemo Breyer - forthcoming - Neuroethics:1-9.
    This paper brings neuroscientific experiments into relation with concepts from phenomenological philosophy to investigate phantom sensations from the perspective of embodied subjectivity. Using a mirror device to create intersensory effects in subjects experiencing phantom sensations, one can create illusions aiming at alleviating phantom pain. Neuroplasticity as a general property of the brain and cortical remapping as a specific mechanism underlying the success of this procedure are interpreted with the phenomenological notions of body image, body schema, and body memory. It is (...)
