520 8  This book evaluates the early history of embodied 
       cognition. It explores for the first time the life-force 
       (Lebenskraft) debate in Germany, which was manifest in 
       philosophical reflection, medical treatise, scientific 
       experimentation, theoretical physics, aesthetic theory, 
       and literary practice esp. 1740-1920. The history of 
       vitalism is considered in the context of contemporary 
       discourses on radical reality (or deep naturalism). We ask
       how animate matter and cognition arise and are maintained 
       through agent-environment dynamics (Whitehead) or 
       performance (Pickering). This book adopts a 
       nonrepresentational approach to studying perception, 
       action, and cognition, which Anthony Chemero designated 
       radical embodied cognitive science. From early physiology 
       to psychoanalysis, from the microbiome to memetics, 
       appreciation of body and mind as symbiotically 
       interconnected with external reality has steadily 
       increased. Leading critics explore here resonances of body,
       mind, and environment in medical history (Reil, Hahnemann,
       Hirschfeld), science (Haller, Goethe, Ritter, Darwin, L. 
       Büchner), musical aesthetics (E.T.A. Hoffmann, Wagner), 
       folklore (Grimm), intersex autobiography (Baer), and 
       stories of crime and aberration (Nordau, Döblin). Science 
       and literature both prove to be continually emergent 
       cultures in the quest for understanding and identity. This
       book will appeal to intertextual readers curious to know 
       how we come to be who we are and, ultimately, how the 
       Anthropocene came to be.
