Embodied Virtues and Expertise

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • The Project brings together for the first time two major areas of contemporary research: embodied cognition and virtue epistemology. It provides a theoretical framework that successfully explains expert performance and will also account for the virtues of expert performers in different fields. An important outcome of the project is to develop an understanding of the relationship between embodied knowledge, reliable cognitive traits, and the ability to reflect upon performance and cognitive character. A further crucial outcome will be to provide an epistemological framework for practical pedagogical techniques that develop embodied knowledge and skills, and cognitive virtues.
