Embodied psychology is a school of psychology which stresses embodiment. Proponents of Embodied Cognition include George Lakoff and Mark Johnson.

In the last century psychology, with its emphasis on behaviour and cognitivde paradigms within the confines of the experimental laboratory tended to marginalize the study of bodily form, real-world action, and environmental backdrop. In recent years, this bias has been acknowledge and attempts made to restablish the balance. The result is a body of work which has become known as embodied cognition. (or alternatively , distributed cognition, situated cognition or extended mind).


The work emphasisies that thought and reason are linked to aspects of our physical form and the real world matrix of social, cultural, and technological forces in which we live.
