Review of Metaphysics 44 (4):862-864 (1991)

Posture is an embodied attitude. The basic initial question is "What posture makes inquiry possible?" Essentially, Schumacher argues that there have been two great transitions in human cognitive history, there has been a crucial recent discovery, and we now ought to make a third transition. The book is divided into three parts, roughly one devoted to each of these theses in turn.
