  1. Great list – thanks! One could possibly keep adding to the list, but two things that come to mind. One, there’s an article by Shaun Gallagher called “Lived Body and Environment.” Research in Phenomenology, Volume 16, Issue 1. It really is a great essay.

    Two, the work of Alia Al-Saji would fit on your list. Her new book on the body and inter-subjectivity sounds great. Not especially “cognitive” in focus, but might be of interest.
