Embodily Connected

My theory of Physical Philosophy builds on the concept of the embodied self as mind and body connected, addressed in my senior thesis for Bryn Mawr College: Physical Philosophy: A Mandate for Movement. Our intersection as humans within society influences our behaviors, and by recognizing our moral obligation to care for our selves, we can achieve wellness and thereby increased potential for happiness.

In his introduction to The Philosophical I: personal reflections on life in philosophy [Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield (2002).], George Yancy writes of the self embodily shaped by our collective history:
