Bio:


  • ISEA2009

    Medical doctor Rachel Armstrong will introduce her approach to the human body and its experience; through her understanding of material processes. She does not ascribe to the Cartesian mind/body split and considers human experiences to be firmly embedded in the physicality of flesh, without which the brain itself has nothing to ground it in any appreciation of ‘reality’. Consciousness and emotion, in her view, are embodied.
