In my opinion philosophy in the flesh is a monumental undertaking because it is an attempt to topple an existing paradigm marked by many unexamined assumptions about the nature of the mind consciousness and the mind body relationship. Philosophy in the flesh is the cooperative effort of a cognitive psychologist and a philosopher it begins by introducing modern cognitive psychology and explaining how it is much more experiment based than the previous generation of psychological explanation. We also take up issues in contemporary philosophy linguistics and the social sciences in particular anglo american analytic philosophy chomskyan linguistics and the rational actor model used in economics and foreign policy. Philosophy in the flesh is just part of the first wave over the next decade or two the neural theory of language should develop sufficiently to replace the old view of language as meaningless disembodied symbol manipulation that one finds in the old chomskyan tradition. Philosophy in the flesh the embodied mind and its challenge to western thought this is philosophy as it has never been seen before lakoff and johnson show that a philosophy responsible to the science of the mind offers a radically new and detailed understandings of what a person is
