Chapter in The Oxford Handbook of Early Christian Ritual (OUP)

18 December 2018

Eva Kundtová Klocová has a chapter (in collaboration with Armin W. Geertz) on "Ritual and Embodied Cognition" in a brand new The Oxford Handbook on Early Christian Ritual (OUP).

In their chapter, Eva and Armin explore the "4E approach" to cognition that understands the cognitive system as embodied, embedded, extended, and enactive. The chapter focuses on interactions between bodily actions, human thinking, and the cultural embeddedness of human cognition and its implications for the study of rituals. The authors also provide a sketch of systematic approach to the study of religious rituals based on those theoretical stances and empirical evidence.
