Open peer commentary on the article “Decentering the Brain: Embodied Cognition and the Critique of Neurocentrism and Narrow-Minded Philosophy of Mind” by Shaun Gallagher. Abstract: Shaun Gallagher’s philosophical inquiries are well known, among other things, for a phenomenological theory of an embodied selfhood. However, I show here that Gallagher has not considered all the means that phenomenology has to offer on this issue.
