The Interpenetrating Reality

Bringing the Body to Touch


David Appelbaum

The Interpenetrating Reality is a philosophical investigation of what inhibits a fresh perception of the world. It explores the dulling effect of habit on tactile contact with the body. A disharmonized cognitive function which keeps the mind preoccupied is analyzed. Embodiment or an incarnate state is studied as an alternative avenue to the act of perception. The body itself as an organ of perception provides the keynote of the examination.
Contents: A study of organic life as perception - The body's role in the act of perception - The tactile sense as offering a new approach to our sense of reality.
