Spatz, Ben (2017) Embodiment as First Affordance: Tinkering, Tuning, Tracking. Performance Philosophy, 2 (2). pp. 257-271. ISSN 2057-7176

In a diverse range of recent research activities, I have worked to develop productive distinctions between embodied knowledge, embodied practice, embodied technique, and embodied research; but I have settled for a brief gloss of the crucial descriptor ‘embodied’ (Spatz 2015, 11– 14).1 In this essay I offer a critical and philosophical approach to embodiment, explaining why we continue to need this concept and what I believe it can still do for us.
